The Biggest Boat In The World

ca2fs32n.jpg

The biggest boat in the world was as big as an aeroplane … so big in fact, that it could fly just like an aeroplane … the biggest boat in the world was so big that it could float across the globe … so big in fact, that it even scared the sharks. The biggest boat in the world was so big that when it was washed by the waves and crashed into a beach … all the jellyfish on the beach wobbled much more than the boats, the starfish jumped and the seaweed hit the floor. Of course, the biggest boat in the world was never late – in fact, it was so big that it got there before it had even left port. The biggest boat in the world was so big that nothing could make it sink – it floated over to Australia and the starboard still hadn’t set off in Dover. The biggest boat in the world was so big that it could circumnavigate the world in less than a day … and ended up in the South Pole as quick as you could say “STARBOARD”. So quick that you could hardly see it float – when it took every other boat in the world forever and a day, the biggest boat in the world got there twice as fast as every other boat, almost as quick as a rocket and even faster than a torpedo. The biggest boat in the world was so big that you couldn’t see the flag on the top of the mask from the deck. You had to use a telephone to tell your friends to come to tea … and all of this biggest boating went on the biggest, bluest and deepest sea.

253 354 / 24 = 6 080 496 ; 34 x 5 = 170; 170 x 252 = 42840; 234 + 24 + 23 = 281; 214 x 25 = 5 350; 2 342 432 325 x 2 = 46 848 646; 895 x 4 – 1 = 3 579
