Ontario man's 8-foot zucchini might be the longest in world

I could say something funny, but I know better than to do so on this website.


You mean like how he can make enough ratatouille to feed everyone in Dryden?

HAHAHAHAHA!

It is funny because Dryden in the smallest city in Ontario, whereas you would expect if someone where making a humorous exaggeration about an 8-foot zucchini, they would pick a larger settlement.

Incidentally, with a population of 7,749, Dryden is much too large to be fed by a single zucchini, even one of such noteworthy length.


Now I'm really curious about Canadian designations of settlements: Google tells me that Dryden is indeed the least populous city, whereas the town of Latchford has a population of 355.

By comparison, California's least populous city is Amador City at 201, and a search on "towns" yields the same result.

So somehow in California, once you incorporate you're both a town and a city, whereas in Canada the two entities are different.

South of the Equator, “cities” are the smallest settlements, whereas “hamlets” have millions of residents!

You know, everyone makes that joke but with sea levels rising and the global trade network decaying, we’re going to need our baskets woven locally and underwater and THEN who will have the last laugh?
