Moon No Match
It has no special powers despite its huge size. There is no magic. Mystical messages are not expected from it. Some higher tides will occur in those areas prone to be affected, but overall, no need to worry; unless, of course, the object falls in. We don't want to think about that, though. All we want to do is take in the rare beauty and magnificence of the sight.
It is a rare phenomenon that will render us speechless. It is an unbelievable 16 percent bigger than normal and brighter. Every living creature will behold its wonder, will tremble at its enormity:
"Le chou grande!" (the big cabbage!)
"Is Goodyear stamped anywhere?"

Mary Lou thinks I should go on a diet. I say pish-posh. Bigger is better. Ask the moon!
