OED Starts My Day

The OED word of the day? Twelve-incher.

Am I wrong to see the humour in the first definition being: "Something that measures twelve inches in length, diameter, height, etc.; spec. (a) a cannon with a bore of twelve inches; (b) a twelve-inch record."

Heh. A "cannon" with a "bore" of "twelve inches." Heh.
