The Absolute Unit Meme Launches All Things Chunky Into Viral Infamy
With more than 50,000 members, the “Absolute Unit” subreddit is a treasure trove of “thicc,” “chonky,” and double-XL people, animals, and things. Discover how the absolute unit meme can incorporate anything that’s bigger than average, from cucumbers to cows and everything in between.
Absolute Unit Cucumber
Imagine expecting a ripe, juicy, delectable watermelon and instead cutting into a dry, overly-large cucumber…. Cue sad gardener sounds.
Andre Rush, White House Chef
Something tells us that Andre hits the gym pretty regularly. (That ‘something’ is the size of those biceps!)

We don’t make plus sizes but we do have our patented “wide load” mannequins.
Absolute Unit Bunny Rabbit
When your rabbit can be described as “child-sized,” you know we are dealing with an absolute unit.
Maybe That’s an Exceptionally Small Scuba Diver?
This absolute unit of a jellyfish was spotted near the coast of the United Kingdom. Not terrifying at all!

Sunfish are units, yo. Adults can get to be almost 11 feet long and weigh over 5,000 pounds.
Somebody Stepped on Your Gator
Who knew that alligators tend to get… flatter… when they gain weight? Learned something new today, didn’t we?
First of all, who knew snails could get this big? Secondly, who knew that they secretly have bunny faces? Nature, you so crazy.
A Rather Nice Bison
This bison was captured so that ranchers can administer blood tests and tag each member of the herd. This male weighed in at about 3,000! That’s a lot of bison burgers.
Maybe They’re Medicinal?
Someone shared this picture of their coworker’s chunky sneakers and they definitely qualify as absolute units. They also probably qualify for AARP insurance.
Absolute Unit Sunflower
That’s like, really big. Is there a giant, a magical harp, and a goose that lays golden eggs at the top?

Who needs a small snack when you can cram an entire wheel of cheese into your gullet?
This Trash Panda Needs to Lay Off the Trash

Derpy Predator Reporting for Duty
The manul (or Pallas’s cat) lives in Central Asia and, in this case anyway, is a socially-awkward, cross-eyed chubster disguised as an apex predator.
According to “The Washington Post,” Knickers is neither a cow nor a giant, not that you’d be able to prove it from this widely-circulated photo that makes him look like the most absolute of absolute units EVER.
“At the shoulder, Knickers stands a mighty 6’4”, which means he’s two inches taller than Arnold Schwarzenegger. And he weighs roughly 2,800 pounds, which is the approximate equivalent of 14-and-a-half Danny DeVitos.”
That’s a lot of Danny DeVitos!
