(Newser) – Apparently size does matter—a new study out of Emory University suggests one unusual way to predict whether a man will be an involved father: "Men with small testicles are better parents," is the key quote. Chalk it up to lower testosterone.

Anthropological studies have shown it to be true in the Ozarks and Little Dixie. You find men in the back woods who live in pallet homes. They have children, a wife, a 2014 Dodge dually, a 2013 Gator, a gun safe, and are on TANF, SSI, AFDC, unemployment, food stamps (Access), SNAP, etc. Their backyard bbq consists of a stack of pallet wood (often Wolmanized wood) and plenty of spare ribs, chicken legs, and kielbasa cooking on a chain link fence. Answer is opposite of what you think about men with big trucks, its testosterone. Men with excessive testosterone who hunt 365 days of the year drive big trucks. Men who buy a smaller CNG Expedition most likely have less testosterone, have a job, support their kids, and own a home with no pallet wood.
