Maine shows off giant lobster roll

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — What could be the world’s longest lobster roll turned out to be even longer than expected.
The giant sandwich unveiled Sunday during Maine’s Old Port Festival in Portland measured 61 feet 9.5 inches — more than a foot longer than organizers were aiming for. It also included a few extra pounds of lobster meat — 48 in all, plus four gallons of Miracle Whip and a special blend of herbs and seasonings.

A local roller derby team helped carry the sandwich to the festival, where it was cut into sections and sold to raise money for a youth association.

The association intends to get the roll certified by Guinness World Records.
