Dear World’s Largest Things,

I was going to write you and tell you about the “World’s Largest Catsup Bottle” but I was told you already knew about it! This doesn’t really leave me with a lot to say other than I pass by that world’s largest pitchfork all the time. I could send you a photo if you wanted. Just let me know if you want me to be in the picture or not (I’m a bit camera shy!).

p.s. My girlfriend says this letter contains “The World’s Biggest Lie!” I’ll let you wonder what that is. (I’ll probably tell you if you write back.)

Dear Christopher - Thank you for the lovely note (wow - we move slowly there - that was from back in September!) - as you know, WLTs are a passion.  I’d love a photo of the Pitchfork, as the one I snapped during a lecture in Ames didn’t turn out so well…Also, you alluded to a “World’s Biggest Lie” … would that be in reference to your “I’m a bit camera shy” comment?

Cheers, & keep Livin’ Large!

This afternoon, when the couch grows weary and its ironclad grip on my ass weakens, I will venture forth to take that picture of The World’s Largest Pitchfork. I will then post it here for your amazement. In the meantime you’ll just have to learn to live with anticipation.

[Update: It took an extra day. (That couch is strong!) But here it is.]
