They have to exist, right? They're out there somewhere. Why aren't there any links on the web about midget pygmies? Someone has something to hide.
According to the Guiness Book of World records, the smallest pygmies are the Mbutsi from Zaire, with an average height of 137 cm (4 ft 6 in) for men and 135 cm (4 ft 5 in) for women. Some groups average only 132 cm (4 ft 4 in) for men and 124 cm (4 ft 1 in) for women.
Maybe Verne Troyer is to blame. At 2' 8", he's been billed as the shortest living man in the world. The average Mbutsi male stands 4' 4". If I'm doing the math right, which I'm probably not, the pygmy equivalent of Mini Me would be around 1' 5". It's in Troyer's best interest to keep midget pigmies, if they do exist, under wraps.
