If the Car Talk Guys, local live music, and the promise of fried dough aren't enough to move your feet to Harvard Square's annual Oktoberfest on Sunday, at least go to see the "World's Longest Sofa." No, really.

The red beaut was designed by by Anders Nørgaard for BoConcept and first assembled for the Aarhus Festival in Denmark. The couch is 213 feet long and has 68 legs. And why would we need such a gargantuan piece of furniture? At 3 p.m., all 30 Honk! marching bands will sit on the sofa on Church Street for a group photo, obviously.

And you thought you'd already seen it all.
