    People are locking arms and playing an unusually large game of red rover.

    I'm pretty sure any game that spans two continents, and isn't being played online, counts as a lot more than being "unusually large"...

    if it's not 'unusually large', then what is it?

    It is "unusually large", much the way the Grand Canyon is a big hole in the ground. It's true, but it's such an understatement.

    But why would you call the grand canyon a big hole? It already comes with a descriptive name. Like the Great Wall of China, all the info you need is in the name. It's not like Niagara falls or Mount Everest. Where you don't even get a location, much less a description.

    I can just image someone asking "What's the Grand Canyon?" "It's a Canyon that's Grand in size"

    Good point. The Grand Canyon analogy is just one I'd heard before; that's why I repeated it (I think the other was about the Pacific Ocean). But you're right, Niagra or Everest would be a better analogy.
