The giantest giant catfish ever was recently caught in Thailand. (Credit goes to Suthep Kritsanavarin/U.S Newswire Photography for the photo.)
This got me thinking about some recent thrilling advances in the creation of giant things:
Snapple's disastrously failed attempt at the world's largest popsicle
The terrifyingly named Extreme Human Bingo, also the world's largest game of Human Bingo
The essential-to-humanity's-perpetuation world's largest s'more
India gets in on the fun with the world's largest roti
And in case your grotesque fascination with things of inordinate size has not been satiated by this brief list, you can go here to get the tour schedule for the The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum. Thank God for crazy people.
