Biggest thing yet

If you're into size here's something for you. A newly discovered blob is the biggest thing in the universe. (Excluding the universe itself, which is the biggest thing in the universe! O.K. I take that back)

According to an article in

An enormous amoeba-like structure 200 million light-years wide and made up of galaxies and large bubbles of gas is the largest known object in the universe, scientists say.

The galaxies and gas bubbles, called Lyman alpha blobs, are aligned along three curvy filaments that formed about 2 billion years after the universe exploded into existence after the theoretical Big Bang. The filaments were recently seen using the Subaru and Keck telescopes on Mauna Kea.

So how long will it take for people to start saying, "you're the blob" or " you're my blob, baby."
"To me you are the biggest blob, yet I am but a little glob." me in the EE
