>In my humble opinion, anything done in England is 90% more likely to be interesting than something done in the US. This unscientific percentage was confirmed by Insomniac earlier this week when she led my innocent eyes to UK Nova – I Can’t Believe It’s Not Television, which apparently allows people to download wonderfully wacky programs. Their admirable goal “is to provide the absolutely latest and greatest TV programs from the UK,” so you know it is gonna be good.

DOCUMENTARY: The Perfect Penis
Channel: Channel 4

For some men bigger - whether by mechanical, herbal or surgical means - will always mean better.

The penis is the organ most central to a man's sense of self, and the quest for penile perfection has driven some men to extraordinary and dangerous lengths.

This programme meets the Russian surgeons who chopped off a man's penis and re-grew it on his arm, the man whose penis has real pulling power, and the man for whom too big is just not big enough.

Two questions: 1. Why oh why do we not get such fine and fascinating programming here in the prudish US of A? (Sigh. I sooooo want to see the show with Brazilian waxes gone wrong!) 2. Am I overacting because it annoys me that “The Perfect Penis” is two minutes and five seconds longer than “The Trouble with My Vagina?”

And speaking of penis issues, my sister randomly gave me a perfect anecdote from this side of the pond (albeit the other side of the Mississippi). She was subbing at a pre-school when one of the kids decided to use the toilet. As he did his business (number two), he looked down at his lap and remarked to another teacher, “Wow, my privates are getting big!” I guess the obsession begins at a much younger age than I thought.
