Manila: Large-ish City

Manila is the largest city in the world named after a type of envelope, even larger than Legal Size, Nigeria and Self-Adhesive Letter Size, India.

If you want to “push the envelope,” Manila is the place to go. They have a 700-foot tall manila envelope in the center of town. Every day, thousands of people take turns trying to push it, but it has never budged an inch.

Perhaps if you work out, do some power-lifting, and confuse your muscles with those baffling P90X routines daily, you may be able to push Manila’s envelope. But don’t count on it, Slappy.
