American cups runneth over

How do they hold the big cups?
The Mayor of New York is going to ban cups of full strength sugar soft drinks larger than 16oz, in the hope that having to carry two 16oz cups will prove too challenging for the large number of obese New Yorkers. 

Meanwhile, over the last 150 years, American heads have gotten bigger, by about the size of a tennis ball (with the extra mass evenly distributed, we assume), and longer, and narrower.

It's consistent:  Americans like to do everything big.
