To those unaware, the “absolute unit” meme is a fairly new concept. It first appeared on December 13, 2017, when a Twitter user named @mrreptoid shared a picture of British hotelier David Morgan-Hewitt standing next to the Queen of England. He wrote, “In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit.”

But the term started gaining popularity after the Museum of English Rural Life tweeted a picture of a ram with the caption “Look at this absolute unit” in 2018. Since then, a lot of photos of colossal animals, plants, and food have been shared online. Clearly, many people love bigger versions of things, as the Absolute Units group has amassed a whopping 1.7 million followers.

Many of us are fascinated by objects that are not the size we normally expect them to be. The internet loves small and big versions of, well, anything and everything. Even Hollywood adores the concept of miniatures and giants.

The movie “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” where an inventor accidentally shrinks 4 kids, was so popular they made a sequel for it. In the new film, “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid,” an experiment goes wrong, causing a toddler to grow to an enormous size. But it’s not just the cinema. In contemporary art, oversized installations make the experience more engaging and fun for people.

Anish Kapoor’s “Cloud Gate” (often called “The Bean”) is one of the largest permanent outdoor art installations in the world. Located in Chicago’s Millennium Park, the monumental piece was unveiled in 2004 and quickly became a popular sight. The bean is 33 feet high, stretches 42 feet wide, and is 66 feet in length. Weighing roughly 110 tons, this impressive sculpture is as heavy as 15 adult elephants!

In some places, giant objects are even being used to make big impacts. The world’s largest rubber duck, which stands over 6 stories high, is displayed in harbors around the world to remind people to enjoy outdoor spaces and preserve them for generations to come. Affectionately called Mama Duck, millions of people have visited her since her debut in Los Angeles in 2014. This whimsical creation was designed by artist Florentijn Hofman.

Unlike these unique creations, some “absolute units” don’t last forever. The Guinness World Record for the largest pizza is held by YouTube star Airrack, along with Pizza Hut. It took almost 4,948 pounds of pizza sauce and 8,800 pounds of cheese to create the 14,000-square-foot pepperoni pie. To put that into perspective, it’s roughly as big as 3.5 standard basketball courts.

David Graves, Pizza Hut’s CEO, told Reuters that the food was not wasted; as soon as the pizza was documented for Guinness, they cut 68,000 slices and donated it to local food banks.

Due to increasing demand, many items are sold in giant versions commercially. Oversized stuffed animals like teddy bears make for a great present. Many parks and public places have extra-large versions of classic games like chess and jenga. People even use giant blow-up decorations during the holiday season to make their house stand out. The fashion industry also has an oversized trend that can be called “fashionable absolute unit.”

Mega-large versions of everyday objects can be amusing. Imagine owning an extra-large makeup palette; it would have all kinds of beautiful colors. Or a very big bag for the airport. You could dump your chargers, beauty tools, snacks, and everything else in it.

But having too much of something is not always a good idea. Digging into an unusually large box of cupcakes could give you a stomachache. Large-sized animals also face challenges like mobility issues and predator vulnerability as they are easily visible. They may also suffer joint issues and heart problems because of their size.
