At the Museum of UnamBIGuously Large Things, a seven-foot docent addressed the  tourists.

“We like to think big,” he said.  Our favorite biblical person is HOT GAIL.  Our favorite animal is THE PLANE.  Our favorite geographical unit is CNN TONITE.” 

What is your favorite vehicle?” a tourist asked. 

“The OSTRICH MELT, of course,” the docent grinned.

“How about your favorite tourist attraction?” ventured another sightseer.

“The LEO MUSIC, naturally. Now, please follow me as I point out some other big things. Here, for instance, is a model of our favorite ocean-going vessel, the SUSIE CHIRP. And in this display you see our most revered athletes, NO EMOLLIENT FLAB. Although we surely give props to the MEOW RUSTLERS as well!  Over here you can see a satellite view of that glorious hole in the ground, the NANCY DRAGON. And finally, “ he said, concluding the tour, “on that wall you see the END BATTALION, a large number that gets larger every second.  I must admit that it is not one of our favorite things…but it is, as they say, ginormous!”
