My daikon's fighting technique is unstoppable!

Everything is big in Japan at some point. Last year, it was Razor Ramon HG, this year, the unstoppable fighting daikon. The BBC has more:

"A giant radish is making the Japanese evening news headlines after it was rushed into intensive care in an agricultural research centre.

The daikon radish, a staple ingredient in Japan, became an unlikely object of public admiration when it started growing through a pavement last year.

The resilient radish was then attacked last year by a mysterious assailant. The local town council has since been trying to re-grow the radish from its severed top. It now hopes to extract its seeds or DNA."
