Is it Just.....

...the angle of the camera or is this the biggest carrot you've ever seen?? Even Eva is displeased with it.
So it got me to thinking about unusually large things, which, by the way, I don't recommend you google.
First, I was confused by the following statement: "Worlds Largest Collection of the Worlds Smallest Versions of the Worlds Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum." I still don't know what that means.
I finally found a list of where the world's largest items can be found. For instance, the world's largest pecan is in Brunswick MO and looks very fake to me. But I don't have that much experience validating large pecans. I scrolled down to the world's largest talking cow and I realized these were all fakes. . . But the largest fakes.
Well, honestly, who needs that?
So I moved on. The world's largest catsup there, that's something useful. Moving on... the world's largest appendix. Now we're talkin'. Now I'm interested. It belonged to one Safranco August from Croatia, which makes sense really, but get this.... he's dead. His claim to fame was discovered after he died.
My attention here began to wander because suddenly I was glancing at the Loudest Burper category and I know Marj has to be near the top in this one, but then I glanced down the list to "Furthest Eyeball Popper." Now I know I'm going off topic here, chasing a rabbit, but please.... furthest eyeball popper?? Furthest?? First of all, is that a word? And secondly, most disturbing, you mean there's more than one person who can pop their eyeball out? So many people, in fact, that we have to award one the furthest in order to make them stand out from the crowd?
My thirst for knowledge came to an abrupt halt when I next saw this category: Longest Ear Hair. I know. I know. I KNOW. I shouldn't have looked. But you know what it's like with the internet!!! Just one little innocent click and something you shouldn't see just pops right up and you try to click the x to close it, but then you just wonder, what else is out there??? so you click on the next button....... it's an illness. Somebody.... stop me!
