Plus mine, which scientists are still trying to verify as human.

A new 'study' from a health supplements company 'Forza Supplements' has divided male shapes and sizes into five categories.

Apparently these only apply to men in the United Kingdom.

They're actually based on basic 2D shapes:

  • Oval (26 per cent)
  • Inverted Triangle (5 per cent)
  • Rectangle (40 per cent)
  • Rhomboid (13 per cent)
  • Triangle (14 per cent)

Each one constitutes a proportion of the UK male population's proportions.

The health experts at Forza Supplements gave examples of each body type:

  • Oval: James Corden.
  • Inverted Triangle: Usain Bolt
  • Rectangle: David Beckham
  • Rhomboid: Daniel Craig
  • Triangle: David Walliams

Sadly dodecahedron was not represented.

Tell us what your favourite British shape is and we will do absolutely nothing about it.
