Today is the 100th post of StronglyWordedLetter.com!
But look, if I had time to run a third blog it'd be dedicated to a daily posting and analysis of the World's Largest Things. I ache to bring you details of the World's Largest Roadrunner (Las Cruces, N.M.) and the World's Largest Shuttlecock (Kansas City, Mo.) but there is just no time.
Thank you to blog reader Brynne, however, for this recap of her recent visit to the World's Largest Wooden Spoon in Miyajima, Japan.
"This past November I spent two weeks exploring Japan with three of my best friends. Have you ever been there? If not, leave immediately.
"Japan is the most beautiful, clean, fascinating country I have ever been to. We had the most amazing time; fumbling our way around the cities, talking with locals, and snapping over 3,000 pictures combined. We're ready to go back :) "
When I asked why the World's Largest Wooden Spoon was in Miyajima here's what she had to say, "Something about a monk that lived on that particular island, making a wooden rice-serving spoon that doesn't damage the taste of the rice. Right. And of course, you can buy your own version of this gi-normous spoon in any of the souvenir shops nearby."
