They Really Are High in Amsterdam!

You have probably all heard it by now. Americans are no longer the world’s tallest people. How much bad news can one take? The dollar is worth close to nothing. Everyone makes fun of Bush. Now Americans are not only the fattest nation but also one of the few that’s actually getting short? Good grief.

The new “tallest people” order goes like this:

  1. The Netherlands (average man is almost 6’1″; average American man is about 2″ shorter)
  2. Denmark (6′)
  3. The Czech Republic (5’11”)

Something tells me the result of this statistic has more to do with strict immigration policies than nutrition…
