Forget Texas, things are bigger in the Dakotas


Disclaimer: No, we do not think this is news. We made every effort to look the other way, but this just felt like a snow-day kind of story.

There are new lists every day that rank our 50 states, and Minnesota fares well in many of them – lists that rank states on everything from business climate to wealth, and rock star production.

But in a new list that Huffington Post calls a thoroughly unscientific analysis, the condom-vendor Condomania has literally sized up the competition – and Minnesota did not measure up.

On this list, at least, North Dakota ranked No. 1 and South Dakota No. 3 in, ahem, penis size. A Time magazine blogger suggests that perhaps "the states at the top of the list may just have an impressive lack of self-awareness."

By the way, Minnesota men are apparently very self aware. The state ranks No. 40.

The top 10:

1. North Dakota
2. Rhode Island
3. South Dakota
4. District of Columbia
5. Massachusetts
6. Ohio
7. Arizona
8. Alabama
9. New York
10. South Carolina
