Though the picture is small, you should be able to tell that baseball guy Yogi Berra has incredibly humongous ears! Like Dumbo almost.
They haven't always been that long and droopy, though. Did you know that ears never stop growing? Scary, huh! Hey, when you're 114, as Yogi must be, you're lobes will probably lounge on your shoulders, too.
But we digress.
Most of you know that Yogi has a way with words. He's the guy who said,..

Believe it or not, the big guy and the big blue cow in the photo here are NOT real. Amazing detail and biological correctitudinousness, huh!
Whoever crafted these totally lifelike replicas of Paul Bunyan (of Brawny Towels fame) and Babe the Blue Ox ("Ox" is Ojibwe for "Big Cow") was a true master of the sculptorial arts. Mike D'Angelo, Ro-Dan and Leonardo Da Caprio--considered by many to be the greatest stone chiselers of all time--got nothing on this guy!
Who is he?....
