Shocking

From today's New York Times:

TOKYO — The nuclear accident at Fukushima was a preventable disaster rooted in government-industry collusion and the worst conformist conventions of Japanese culture, a parliamentary inquiry concluded on Thursday.

Let's see: a preventable disaster rooted in government-industry collusion.

Thank God something like this couldn't happen in America.

I would say Godzilla has "the worst conformist conventions of Japanese culture." He don't conform with nobody.

Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla the lizard can understand
How a lizard destroys
Whatever he can

Zilla don't, Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't take no mess, no
He don't take no mess

Now Zilla might grin
Lizard breath again
Wreck the last cannons like
A little game of skins, hit me

Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla don't, Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't take no mess, hey, hey

Zilla digs lizard chick
If she look real slick
Zilla rap is very quick
He definitely ain't no trick

Oh, yeah

Zilla don't, Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla is the lizard
Who will take a stand
Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't, don't, Zilla don't

Look, dig this

Zilla didn't cuss
He raised a lotta smoke, ya know.
But when we did wrong
Zilla beat the hell out of Tokyo.

Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't, Zilla don't
Zilla don't take no mess
Zilla don't take no mess

I saw Zilla cry when he
Thought Mothra would die
Lookie here
I saw Zilla cry
I saw Zilla cry when he
Thought King Ghidora would die
He says an airplane was in his eye
I knew it was a lie
Zilla lives on Monster Isle.

Mama said Zilla's smart
Zilla got monster-sized heart
And Zilla would do his part
Tear Tokyo apart, hit me
