Do the French (in general) have big noses?

I really hate to generalize, but my gut tells me that yeah, they kinda do.

I mean, it's not a huge difference, mostly very subtle, but if you do enough observation you might come to the same conclusion.

A statistical analysis has found that the average distribution is similar to that of other countries.

Now lets do two more surveys:
1) Are Americans (in general) fat?
2) Are Americans (in general) dumb?

Would the results of these surveys look like those of the big nose surveys? I suspect not, because nose size is based on genetic distribution, which is not quite random but near enough. The fat issue is a reflection of what they eat, and most people believe that Americans eat nothing but Makdos and French Fries. As for the dumb issue, there are two causes. Firstly the American education system. Secondly the different social practices, which are widely seen as dumb in other countries. And lets face it, more than half of them did flock to vote for a dumb president a couple of years back.

I don't think you can really make that generalization about any culture.

I reckon it's more the way they hold their heads that makes the noses look bigger.
