We certainly do seem to have an obsession with all things BIG as I found when I went off to research the subject.
We have a few super candidates right here in the Sunshine State.

Moving south there is the Big Banana
and the Golden Guitar
These are but a few.
If you would like to see more here is a link.
To finish up I give you two of the most disturbing of all.
