World's Largest!

Don't hold me accountable if you find something larger than what I post!  As I was doing research for this post, I found a list of US States with what they claim are the World's largest, but it came apparent to me that no one was checking up on them!  Some different states would claim they have the largest chair, for example, so just take them as you see them!
Chair:  Anniston, AL
Buffalo statue:  Jamestown, ND
Crayon:  Easton, PA
Donut:  Los Angeles, CA
Kokopelli:  Yavapai County, AR
Baseball bat:  Louisville, KY
Snowman:  North St. Paul, MN
Old Ben (real steer):  Howard County, IN
Bicycle:  Sparta, WI
Thermometer:  Baker, CA

Well, I have had my own experience with this one!  While working in Marietta, Georgia, I would ask the locals how to get to certain places and their answers always had the Big Chicken in it, go to the big chicken and make a right, go passed the big chicken and make the first left.  Marietta, Georgia is definitely the home of the Big Chicken!
Big Chicken:  Marietta, GA
Tire:  Allen Park, MI
Washboard:  Logan, OH

Have a great day!

This is a fun post. I've seen the donut and it is a large one. I rather like the giant washboard though. :)

The Crayon store looks like a fun place to shop!

LOL, is it shrinking or is your eyesight going, VE?

The Crayola Factory is awesome! A really fun place to shop. You should see the bins for the crayons, you can pick out by color!
