Limbaugh: Penises now ’10 percent smaller’ and shrinking because of ‘feminazis’
Actual Limbaugh argument or Onion parody? Answer after the fold.
Answer: Actual Limbaugh Argument
Rush Limbaugh on Thursday lashed out at feminists — who he called “feminazis” — over the news that male genitalia are shrinking.
The conservative radio host pointed to an Italian study which found that the average male penis was 10 percent smaller than 50 years ago. Researchers cited weight gain around the waist, smoking, stress and environmental pollutants as factors.
But Limbaugh wasn’t buying that explanation.
“I think it’s feminism,” he declared. “If 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.”
“Give ‘em time and they’ll blame Bush. But air pollution vs. feminazis? Ha!”
Rawstory has the clip. Tom Lehrer was right; satire is obsolete.
