The Geneva Con 1949 t-shirt gave me a good laugh.

I've come to terms with my being a bad person already.

Yeah right. Who would want to work in Godzillas crotch?

Sorry I'm late for work, my building got into a fight with Mothra.

The addresses will be something along the lines of "Dr. Hideo Suzuki, Togawa Medical, Suite 100, Lower Digestive Tract, Minato-ku, Tokyo 108-8611 Japan"

Hey, this is seriously one of the funniest blogs I've read in a long time. It's got all sorts of great linkable posts. Thanks!

I'm personally a fan of the "take yourself to work day" shirt

London has a building shaped like a pickle. It's known there as the "Gherkin".

[Meanwhile, there's going to be a second Tokyo Tower. Current schedule is for completion in 2011.)

I think its a cool idea. A little wacky and funky but that's Japan for ya. It should shoot huge plumes of flame though.

Great idea. That way when Godzilla really does begin a rampage over Tokyo, he'll see this building and be utterly confused.

Technically speaking, that would be the Mechagodzilla building.

Speaking of which, is anyone going to Balabananza this year? I would go, except I already got a booth at the Wallace Shawnathon.

There should definitely be a Godzilla Building in Tokyo, since there's already one of his giant golden turds located here.

A truly brilliant idea. I also like the pre-pixelated t-shirts.

Here is a nice example of how Tokyo has already embraced 'representational' architecture: The Giant Golden Radish [or what you will]

I think it's a great idea.

The comments on that site, however, are a little cringe-inducing.

They need to add this to their cafepress store.

Uh, that's not a gherkin.

I love the idea of a life-size Godzilla building towering over Tokyo, but one practical detail gives me pause. Have you looked at Tokyo Tower recently? Have you noticed how this otherwise Eiffel-Tower-like structure is painted in garish orange and white stripes? This is because of a Japanese law which states that all structures over a certain height must be painted with these orange and white stripes for aircraft visibility. Now imagine the Godzilla Building after being forced to comply with these regulations.

My fear is that Godzilla would try to mate with the building.

Try?
