Jimmy Kimmel Stuffs Mexico With His Own Mighty Meatball
Jimmy Kimmel's patriotism can't be called into question. The late-night talk show host was so incensed that Mexico recently set the record for world's largest meatball (as part of a publicity stunt promoting the film adaptation of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), that he challenged the title by making his own ginormous meatball right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. Compared to the 109-pound Mexican meatball, this 200-pound one was the "the largest meatball human hands have ever made," as was verified by Guinness World Record officials. Tommy Lasorda was on hand to act as official taster for "Team Meatball U.S.A."
