Go BIG or Go Home
What Happens When A Small-Town Family Visits The "World's Largest"... Whatever!

WHERE IS IT? Wednesday

Our love of BIG has its limits. Bugs are usually beyond our scope of warm regards. Although we did love this gigantic Cootie.

This one is kinda cute too, no? Mainly, because it’s not alive.

Nibbles Woodaway

Big bug, small state.

Do you know where it lives? Ten points to the first person who tells us! Extra points for specificity. (By the way, “specificity” is my new favorite word.)

Here’s a hint: my friend Nellie, yet another “Go BIG” convert, took this photo for us…and could only do so safely because she was sitting on the passenger side.

UPDATE: Poor Mr. Nibbles Woodaway, living a life of obscurity, even though he is the world’s largest bug! Only three people chimed in with the correct answer. Our facebook friend Bill S. was the first to name his location: on the top of the New England Pest Control office building in Providence, RI. He’s a 30-year old, two-ton, 58-foot termite, and an icon you can see from the southbound side of I-95.

    We saw this last weekend on our visit – it’s in Providence, Rhode Island! Also can be seen in the movie Dumb & Dumber

    No idea but I hope I don’t ever encounter a bug that size! :0) I DO remember it in Dumb and Dumber, hahaha!

    This is in Rhode Island either right outside or in Providence!
