"People can eat Godzilla and become energetic and powerful. It's got dreams mixed in with fun," Takara spokeswoman Yoko Watanabe said Tuesday. Do I even need to comment? They've chopped up Godzilla and they're eating him. Where's Greenpeace when you need them? (Of course, maybe it's the pseudo-Godzilla from the recent American picture...I'd feel less bad about that.)

I'm sure they meant "Rodan meat" in the fifth paragraph. What a health risk radon meat would be.

If they marketed Godzilla foods in America, they would be marshmallow cereals or candy bars or fruit snacks. Surely canned corned beef has to have a better nutritional value. at least, I hope so.

Clearly Hedorah, the Smog Monster should have been the spokesmonster.
He kinda looks like corned beef to begin with.

Take cover. Seriously. If this isn't a harbinger of the apocalypse, I don't know what is.

Is nothing sacred? Dammit, not even Godzilla? I can't have human heros, okay. I'm fine with that. But at least I should be able to have giant, irked and irradiated lizards to look up to, shouldn't I? Can't I just have that, at least?

Wasn't Godzilla some sort of fish? When did he (or she if you believe that movie with the guy from the Producers) become beef, let alone corned?

I'm Welsh, I'm poor, I'm not Richard Burton yet. Do you hear? I'm Welsh, I'm poor, and I'm not Richard Burton yet.

What kind of cookie? I'm partial to Lorna Doone's.

The article left out any mention of whether a "stomping, fire-breathing, irradiated dinosaur" is kosher.

History shows again and again
That marketing points out the folly of Man.
