You may ask, Barry and Levon, where did you get $240 for a giant box of pudding? Don't worry your pretty lil head about it, it ain't your concern.

Is there some big cheese too? 'Cause all this crap is incredibly cheesy. I prefer getting my cheesy crap from Archee McPhee.

Spend a year or two in Japan and when you go back to the US and go to the supermarket, everything looks this outsized. Seriously. My wife said that the first time she went to a convenience store in the U.S., she was shocked to see that "Americans buy cola in buckets."

The super extreeem megaDouble Gulp is 64 ounces, closing in on the theoretical 99-ounce Gulp event horizon at which all gulpage recursively implodes and becomes infinitely small, taking the universe with it. Someone send me a picture of someone drinking one of these while riding one of those miniature motorcycles.

When I was a kid, there was a store near where I lived called "Think Big" which had giant versions of regular stuff - I remember giant crayons (like, 4 feet high) and giant matchbooks, off the top of my head. We (my sister & I) used to love making trips to this place, but my parents must have been bored to tears. (Well, perhaps not my father. I think he even found Garfield amusing.)

$194 for a giant pencil is a bit rough, especially since a normal sized one is like 20 cents or something!

Never eat anything bigger than your head. Never drink anything larger than your bladder.

I have 2.3 of the exact same candy bar they are advertising, and all three of them cost me less than what they are charging for one. And I got to pick the mix of milk versus dark bars, which they are silent on.

I ate some of the dark earlier today, with peanut butter. Mmm...
