The origins of Paul Bunyan are still unknown but the odds are someone in a lumber camp around the Great Lakes came up with this piece of folklore. There is a French Canadian lore about Mr. Bunyan but other's say he could have come from Minnesota since the Duluth News Tribune was the first to publish the stories.

Not to be confused with the Paul Bunyan trophy or Paul Bunyan, Michigan, but the lore is he is a giant lumberjack with superhuman strength and is accompanied by Babe the Blue Ox which is his pet and working buddy.  Anything to do with Bunyan is big.

This picture above really gives you the beastie size of this breakfast. If you think you can pull off eating this bad boy breakfast, Elly's is at 174 W Weidman Rd. Weidman, Michigan, near Mt. Pleasant. If you can eat this in under an hour, you get the $16 breakfast for free, they will give you a sweet t-shirt, and then add you to the wall of fame that now only has 2 people on it.
