World's shortest man Khagendra Thapa Magar visited New York and "confessed he was taken by the city's tall blonde women." When a 22-inch man from Nepal says tall blondes are the hottest women, international beauty standards are officially fucked.

Luckily for Khagendra, his infantile appearance compels American women to pick him up and smother him with kisses.

Outside the 102-story Empire State Building, Marjorie Longchamp snuggled the 18-year-old like he was a newborn and gave him a kiss.

"It was a spiritual thing," Longchamp said. "It was awesome. He just attracted me."

Though I find it surprising that a being with a brain the size of a thimble is capable of using language at all—much less expressing amorous intents—more power to him and his libido, I guess. Now here's a picture of Khagendra posing with a sausage at Katz's deli:

Ripley's Believe It Or Not sponsored Khagendra's trip to help promote their new book. I wonder what his seating arrangement on the airplane was like. [NYDN, images via AP]
