I bet you never thought you would read a story about penis painting. It’s actually super interesting, we swear. And it’s also hilarious that someone decided to investigate the matter: What happens to penis size in the context of fine art? It turns out that the “ideal” penis size, at least according to the people who paint them, has increased over the years. The National Post’s Joseph Brean takes an in-depth look at how the researchers came to this decision – and how it relates to the golden ratio. “Pointing fingers at penises in classic fine art is as sacred a childhood tradition as underlining swear words in the dictionary,” Brean reports.


By now, it is well known that Canada is limping towards a health care crisis. If we’re not there already. In a five-part series, a partnership between the National Post and The Hub, we look at some of the issues facing the medical system and what can be done to address them. If you missed the inaugural piece, written by Mark Hill, you should check it out. “Talk to the premiers and they’ll probably tell you it’s easy to fix Canada’s health care system: it just takes money, about $28 billion, more or less,” Hill reports. The second piece addresses a question that preoccupies so many Canadian minds: Before, we had an excellent doctor-patient ratio. What happened? “Whether the new solution is to refund medical and nursing schools, to nationalize the South African solution or to expand access to private alternatives, to strengthen provincial autonomy in health care policy, or All of these elements combined, headlines across the country show that Canadians need quick fixes,” said Geoff Russ.

In the weekly satirical report Dear Diary, the National Post imagines a journalist’s thoughts. This week, Joseph Brean takes an imaginary journey into the thoughts of Bruce Springsteen: I sang “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress sways,” but the original album liner notes, which I wrote, like everything else, say the dress “ripples.” It’s a tragedy. It’s wrong. I made a terrible mistake.
