We visited Brandon, Iowa, home of the world's largest frying pan. I'd like to say we "stumbled upon" Brandon, Iowa, home of the world's largest frying pan, but Cecilia had seen this "national monument" (her words, not Maggie's) months before and made it OUR BEESWAX to be there. And, "by God's grace," we were (again, her words and her words alone).
We should be honest with you since you are our devout readers (Rachel and Matt). As of 2015, the Brandon, Iowa Frying Pan clocks in at about the world's 2nd or 3rd largest. It's really not the world's largest any more. The largest is in Washington State. The one competing with Brandon, Iowa is somewhere in Delaware but, frankly, no one cares enough about it to measure them both and see which is larger.
So, long story short, we visited the world's second, maaaaaybe third, largest frying pan and IT WAS FUCKING AWESOME. It may not be first in The Guinness Book Of Records but it's first in our book.
Who cares about the effing Guinness Book Of Records? Do they have a blog?! Hell no! Maybe? I dunno. Don't Google it! Bookz are dead but 15 feet cast-iron frying pans are forever. Here are some pics.
