JUMBO ... as in Bologna

I lived in eastern Ohio, although I was born in the 'burgh.

I remember after I moved back to the area...eating lunch in a local
Sub (i.e. Hoagie) Shop. I ordered the JUMBO Hoagie, thinking I was
getting a BIG Hoagie. When it was delivered I exclaimed to my
co-worker,
"Hey, this is bologna!" "Well, that's what you ordered", she replied.

I have never gotten used to referring to bologna as jumbo.
