Now hold it just a minute guys ...
Remember the unwritten rule of sizes:
Inanimate objects like hailstones are measured in golf, tennis, baseball (or softball) sizes.
Squishy stuff that comes from the body are measured in pea, cherry, walnut, plum, apple, and grapefruit (and occasional MELON!!) sizes.
Sometimes of course there are these ladies who have football size calcified tumors -- but that is the only exception i know of.
OK .. carry on with the size comparisons! ...
