Comically Large Things is a blog about things that are so dang big you could fit everything at Smallist [previously] in any given entry. For example: nose! [via Projects and our own jbickers]

Are you suggesting it might not measure up?

We had one of those giant slide rules in my high school math department. When a handful of us math geeks did really well collectively on some national exams, the school decided to pencil in some pep-assembly time between the football team appearance and the rally squad's floor show to have us march in with the thing over our shoulders. It was fantastic, if kind of bewildering to behold.

I was surprised to see that Nibbles Woodaway wasn't included. Maybe he's more scary than comic...

I like big things and I cannot lie.

While I'm sure they are practical, I've always thought that these trucks were comical in their largeness.

In Newark, OH is the world's largest basket, which also happens to be the corporate headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company.

Heh. jbickers knows a gold-mine of source material when he sees it, apparently.

Damnit, it's kind of a faux pas to post a photoshopped version of a picture when gathering a collection of world x'iest x's. (He's not really wearing a helmet)

I agree with Kraftmatic Adjustable Cheese. Self-link. Burn him!
