By now, it’s well documented that Rush Limbaugh is prone to saying stupid things on his highly rated talk radio show (yes, many people do listen to — and believe — the stuff that emerges from this man’s mouth). We’re talking really stupid things, like of epic proportions. For instance, on his program Thursday, Limbaugh introduced a crazy theory involving one of his favorite targets: feminists (or “feminazis,” as he calls them).

The segment began with Limbaugh discussing an Italian study that found a man’s penis size, on average, is 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago. The study cites numerous reasons — all of them scientific — including weight gain, environmental factors and smoking.

But Rush, scientist and comedian that he believes himself to be, thinks otherwise. Clearly, Limbaugh stated, men’s penises are shrinking because of feminists. Here’s what he said: “I think it’s feminism. … It’s tied to the last 50 years — the average size of [a male’s] member is 10 percent smaller than 50 years — it has to be the feminazis, the chickification and everything else.”

That’s right, ladies. Embrace your power. According to Rush Limbaugh, only you can control the size of a man’s package.
