The World’s Largest Insurance Policy Provision


Regular Coverage Opinions readers know that I have a fascination with world’s largest objects – those quirky roadside attractions that often serve to draw tourists to small towns across America.  There’s the world’s largest ball of twine in Cawker, Kansas, the 55 foot Jolly Green Giant statue in Earth Blue, Minnesota, visitors to East Glacier, Montana can come face-to-face with the world’s largest purple spoon.  Known as “Big Martha,” the utensil clocks in at 25 feet.  And who among up doesn’t have on their bucket list a trip to Collinsville, Illinois to see the nearly 70 foot world’s largest catsup bottle.        

Given my wonderment for world’s largest objects, I must make a trip to an amusement park in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia, to see the world’s largest banana.  It has even been put on an Australia postage stamp.  I guess there are only so many kangaroo and koala stamps they can put out.  

But the real draw is that it is a twofer -- and an insurance one at that.  Of course the world’s largest banana would have the world’s largest banana peel.  Thanks to a clever risk manager at the amusement park, the behemoth banana is now accompanied by the world’s largest insurance policy provision.
