At first we thought this was an early April Fool's sight gag, but it's not. It's an actual product from Hammacher Schlemmer, and they're calling this $150 sports chair Brobdingnagian, a word I've been looking for an excuse to use in print for years. For those of us not familiar with the work of Jonathan Swift, that means humongous.
Look and laugh at this 5.5-foot-tall throne, capable of embracing even the most gigantic butt with its 9-square-foot seat. And hey, did you eat dozens of hot dogs on that picnic? No worries, because it supports up to 400 pounds, enough for three or four of our attractive, slim readers. And no matter how thirsty you are, its six cupholders stand ready to accommodate all your beverage-guzzling needs.
We can only sum it up thusly: Brobdingnagian makes you feel like a Lilliputian. Good lord, I love this job.
