"Weird Al" Yankovic was once asked about his favorite landmarks. "The Biggest Ball of Twine, in Darwin, Minnesota," he replied. "It's 21,140 pounds. Made by one man, Francis A. Johnson. I wrote a song about it."
The song's title? "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" of course.
["Life," Yankovic declared, "doesn't get much better than that." ... "He wrapped up this ball of twine and had it basically in his backyard," Yankovic explained. "When he passed away they rolled it onto a flatbed truck and drove it across the city and put it in the middle of a park and put a gazebo over it. It's a shrine to this huge ball of twine."]
