Giant Sunflowers and Massive Pumpkins

Written by: Captain Skellett // December 29th, 2009 // Jibber Jabber, Just for Fun

The giant sunflower. It can get as big as 20 feet / 8 meters high, that’s bigger than a giraffe! Varieties include Sunzilla and Mammoth.

There’s no science here, it’s just awesome – heard about it yesterday playing a game called BS, here’s a sample. Can a type of antelope can sleep underwater? Aye! Sitatunga be their name, and they keep their nostrils in the air. Can a moose sneeze kill a man? Nope, complete BS. Great game.

And for your further enjoyment, behold the giant pumpkin, most powerful of all the pumpkins!

What is it with people and giant stuff? I don’t grow giant stuff, mlia.
