I love this word! Don’t know if I’ll be using this word in my vocabulary often since it’s hard to pronounce (you try it! Now say Brobdingnagian 3x fast!) but love this word anyways!
The sketch is based on the quote. I was half asleep creating this sketch, my sloppy sketch moment.
Brobdingnagian \ brob-ding-NAG-ee-uhn \ , adjective;
1. Of extraordinary size; gigantic; enormous.
Some men set out to climb Mount Everest. Ammon Shea set out to read the Oxford English Dictionary fulltime, from cover to cover. Or rather covers to covers, his recent job as a furniture mover providing handy preparation for hoisting its 20 hefty volumes. And why did Shea fix his sights on this Brobdingnagian challenge – because it was there? “I have read the OED,” he says, “so that you don’t have to.”
