This reminds me of the Sesame Street song, which says, in part...

Oh everything comes in its own special size
I guess it can be measured by where you put your eyes
It looks big when you're close
And it looks smaller back a bit
That's about the size of it...

That's about the size
It's where you put your eyes
That's about the size of it.
