How long should my fingers be?

I was eating a pancake earlier and bit myself on the ring finger because, relative to my other fingers, it's very long. My ring finger is substantially longer than my index finger, almost as long, in fact, as my middle finger. Upon investigation I discovered that my SO is the other way round (short ring finger, long index finger). Then we woke our ailing daughter, and she takes after me.
So who's the freak? Me or the other half? Or are these things evenly distributed? If no-one knows for sure I'll take the results of a poll as evidence.
