Crowd size at D.C. mall, with new crowd size rating scale

After some debate and consideration at the Pajamas Media website concerning the size of yesterday’s big rally in D.C., I developed a new rating scale for crowd size.

  1. Ginormulous = Original MLK I Have a Dream event
  2. Ginormous = ?
  3. Gigantic = ?
  4. Enormous = ?
  5. Humongotorious = ?
  6. Humongous = ?
  7. Huge = Aug. 28, 2010 honor rally
  8. Massive = ?
  9. Big = ?
  10. Sharpton-like

  11. Critical mass

  12. Esperanto convention
  13. Rahm Emanuel Ethics Society

It needs some more photographic examples of D.C. crowds for the upper end of the scale, from ginormous down to humongous. You can have a lot of fun with this. Post a comment if you have a good example. 😀
