strange but true


Ontario, Canada: Engineering student Mischa Beutling, 22, pleaded not guilty to a rape charge on the grounds that his penis was too large to have committed the crime.

Beutling called a urologist to the stand in Newmarket to testify that his penis is 8.5 inches long 'semi-relaxed' and 6.5 inches in circumference and that a woman who had not given birth could not accommodate it. He was found guilty.
