The Greatest Story Never Told

Years ago I was searching for the biggest rooster I could find and heard about a guy in Petaluma, California, who had owned a rooster called Weirdo that weighed thirty pounds. Sadly Weirdo had passed away, but his offspring were alive, and guess what? They were even bigger. I went out there and found Ralph, son of Weirdo, who weighed an amazing thirty-two pounds! Then I found Frank, a special breed of miniature horse that stood less than two feet high. I told Frank’s owner I wanted to film Ralph chasing Frank—with a midget riding him—around the biggest sequoia tree in the world, thirty metres in cir-cumference. It would have been amazing because the horse and the midget together were still smaller than Ralph, the rooster. But unfortunately Frank’s owner refused. He said it would make Frank, the horse, look stupid.

    Love this! He is about the size of my three children when they were born. Will he grow up to be the size of his Mother. Would like to see the large rooster.

    In 1919, its anarchist government was brought to court on charges
    of being “wholly impotent” although to be fair, maybe that was due to all the nude swimming.
    There are only so many bare taints you can ram into during a game of
    Marco Polo before the li’l admiral just starts refusing
    to salute, you know?. ABSA Cargo Airline, a Brazilian air cargo carrier, is dedicated to
    overcoming these challenges and excelling in the transport of such
    precious commodities, including livestock cargo.
    During the first half of this year, ABSA successfully transported hundreds
    of competition horses from South America to Europe.”We have transported an average of 50 animals per week this year,” says Dario Matsuguma, ABSA
    Cargo Airline’s Technical Director. ralph lauren polo
