I have always been drawn to works of art that depict things bigger than they are in real life. For example, I have always been drawn to sculptures like this one in Philadelphia, and I grew up just a short ride from this larger-than-life statue of a woman. I hope someday to get to see this.
It is, therefore, not surprising that I would be a fan of the Discovery Channelâ€™s series called â€œBigâ€ even though the only episode I have so far seen involved the construction of a 31 foot electric guitar, which was built to scale from a 60â€™s vintage â€œRed Rocketâ€ guitar (click on “guitar” box and tabs). It boasts having the worldâ€™s largest pickup, which was constructed by the guitar pickup guru, Seymour Duncan (check out the photos of the building of the pickup).
Of course, being a bit of a goofy bastard, thinking about all these â€œBigâ€ things got me to wondering how big a suppository for an elephant would have to be. I figure that it would probably be about this big.
That constitutes todayâ€™s peek into the serpentarium inside my cruller.
