As I'm currently about to take a walk this morning, I pass by a house which has a tree who's leaves are about as tall as that one, but has a much larger diameter.

Not stated in the best way, but quite possible. In MN, a tornado ripped apart St. Peter, just devastated about 90-95% of the city. I was up in Oakdale MN at the time, about ten minutes from the Wisconsin boarder. There were reports coming in from near by cities just across the boarder in WI that papers and debris were falling from the storm clouds, and many of the papers had addresses and information on them that let the people who found them know they came from St Peter, which was 90 miles away.

A leaf carried a long distance on a hurricane? Yeah, I can see it.

Maybe the man is just a midget holding a regular-sized leaf.

You sure that pic wasn't meant for the Weddings section of the paper?

If you look closely I believe you can see a human head poking through the leaf in the picture just above.

re: the OP's photo

he must've used one of them cell phone things to call reuters.

maybe we should call him up and congratulate him. i really like how his phone is strapped to his chest, in a bad pun kinda way.

I have had 2-3 extremely large leaves in my yard as well, with only small-leaf producing trees. Very odd.

Did you make sure and roll it up and smoke just in case it did anything?
