Good Lord, I can think of ten ways that pic can be shown....
But the thing that keeps running through my brain is a line from the Tom Hanks movie "Mermaid":
"It's so... So BIG.... And it's really here!"

Them suckers is huge! How much you figure they weigh?
You could ride one of them if it didn't decide you were good to eat, and didn't run through brambles!!!!
Them's HAWGS by God!
Something Carl Sagan talked about in the BOOK "Cosmo's" is natural versus artificial selection. If we breed only those animals most beneficial to us - for size or productivety for instance. The gene pool adapts to large size and therefore quantities of meat available from them. By farming selectively - we have practiced what Darwin saw in the wild, but in a strict sense, so as to bring about what we wanted.
Domestic animals were created by intervention in the breeding process. WE made them.

I'd have to ask my uncle Ben, was his dad, wish I got to see him more often, I hear his health is on a downfall, I still ride out to the old property when visiting east TN. The log cabin they first setup housekeeping still stands, it's behind great grandma's dads place off of Chapman Hwy, BTW, that house was listed with some property last year for near half a million dollars. I spent my Christmas time viewing the Delosier family book, checking out my family tree on that side, quite large. I learned country folk had a large quantity of kids, didn't venture far from home and if you look TOO closely, the tree's seem to grow together, you'd not believe where Asa Delosier 1700's who once preached in Cades Cove offspring wound up. He's the furthest relative on that side I could trace, OMG the years brought them into the family a number of times.
