Brobdingnagian (brob-ding-NAG-ee-uhn) adjective
Of gigantic size.
[After Brobdingnag, the fictional region where everything was enormous, in Jonathan Swift's satire Gulliver's Travels.]
"It never ceases to amaze me how people with seemingly Brobdingnagian egos
are absolutely convinced that their supreme qualities will only become
apparent to the rest of the world if they are seen in a so-called luxury
car bought with taxpayers' money."
Wars are the side-effects of nationalism. -Yahia Lababidi, writer (b. 1973)
