Navel-gazing can lead to a rude awakening which some folks simply can't deal with. According to a recent report, that harsh reality is penis size for a lot of Germans. 

Newsweek reports that statistics from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show that Germany is the leading hub for penis enlargement surgeries in the world. By far. A reported 2,786 procedures have taken place in Germany over the past year, meaning Germans account for nearly a fifth of the 15,414 surgeries that take place annually. 

Furthermore, Germany has a commanding lead over Venezuela, the runner-up: 

This amounts to eight out of every 100,000 men in Germany, which is four times the number of those undergoing the procedure in its closest contender for the top spot on the list - Venezuela. 473 men went under the knife for the procedure in Venezuela, while 471 opted for the nip and tuck in third placed Spain.

Does this solidify Germany as the most insecure country, World Cup championship and all?
