USA! USA! We're Number One...in Porn! (We Did It, You Guys)

Hello fellow Americans. Recently losing our obesity crown to Mexico has probably got you feeling a bit down, and I understand that. Chanting "We're Number two, we're number two" doesn't really have the same ring to it.

We're still number one in terms our incarceration levels, and I'm sure we're still on top in number of current reality shows about people with 20+ children. But if you don't feel like celebrating either of those victories, here's something to boast about at your next multicultural barbecue...

The United States of Awesome hosts the most porn in the world - and it's not even close.

New research from "family-friendly web product specialists MetaCert" shows that the U.S. hosts about 428 web pages full of porn. That's around 60% of the world's porn.

Coming in second is The Netherlands with 187 million pages of porn - 26%. The U.K. hosts 7% or the internet's porn pages - but that number will probably take a hit over the next couple of years.

Here's the rest of the top 10, in order: Germany, France, Australia (T), Canada (T), Japan, Virgin Islands (T), and the Czech Republic (T).

Maybe it's the cultural differences, maybe it's the cost of web hosting, or maybe it's sweet, sweet porny freedom. Whatever the case, take pride, America. You did it.
