I came in here to make a "look at that fucking book deal" joke, but couldn't because I laughed out loud at these. Damn you, godzilla haikus!

Godzilla rampaged
long before Raymond Burr was
clumsily cut in

A Godzilla '98-inspired tryptych, because Devlin and Emmerich still suck after all these years:

A mighty lizard
laid low by the makers of
Independence Day.

A gorilla-whale
belongs in his native land
not New York City.

Who greenlit that lame
Matthew Broderick movie?
Why Godzilla why?

After V-J Day,

These remind me of the lungfish level of Psychonauts.

Oh no there goes Tokyo
Go Go Godzilla

By the way, mine was a Reverse Haiku, which is a little-known form with a long and rich history of tradition that dates back as far as Metafilter's edit function.)

Godzilla we plead
Only if you have the time
Come and kick our ass

Godzilla 2000 Paraphrased Haiku:

"Why does he save us?"
"Godzilla's in each of us."
Best answer ever.

When he was dancing chorus
In the road show "Stomp."
