Gimongous

adjective; blending
The characteristic of being extremely large. Probably derived from the blending of the two words- gigantic and humongous to emphasize an objects disproportionately hefty size. It is possible that the initial user of the word created the word to express that an object was so large that a simple description of either gigantic or humongous would not be accurate.
 
“That’s a gimongous burrito!”
Etymology : Blending of gi(gantic) + (hu)mongous; Origins of word components- Latin (gigās) and American English (huge, monstrous)
