From an evolutionary standpoint, a large square jaw is a sign of strength. Back when we were spear-chucking neanderthals, the proper way to settle an argument was to punch your opponent in the face. This tradition still lives on ESPN, in certain Olympic events and on State Street after midnight. A man with a large square jaw is not a good candidate for face-punching because you're likely to break your fingers so you're forced to go to plan B: nut-kicking. This is why most men who crave power have large jaws and tiny nuts.
