Yeah, DEEP, man!  "Large", like "the world's largest midget" (old PT
Barnum con)??

OK, among other elements, their atoms are large--but they still seem
pretty small to me.  Even their numbers are small, as numbers go...

But maybe some people do grok on the largest of whatever. (cf. Guiness
Book of Records...) Even among midgets, size matters; it has been
rumored they have "the largest things".
