Think about it for a minute. Put yourself in the big G's shoes. The entire Japanese military is after you, and in spite of their ineffective little pop guns, they can become damned annoying when you are just trying to do your job of destroying Tokyo. On top of that, every new monster on the block comes picking a fight with you, trying to make a name for himself. It's enough to really stress you out. Makes you fire-breathing mad, in fact.

Thank goodness the big G has learned of the calming effects of meditation.

Pre-challenge notes:
Score? Hahahahah!!! Hoping to clean up on comments. Scores don't matter. (I'll try to remember that when this comes in at a 4.3.) It's possible that with popularity of the Godzilla side challenge this month, that there may be a greater appreciation for this. This will be a fun challenge for me, no matter the score. I wonder if I will be mistaken for 21.gif Art Roflmao during voting?

Only minutes after rollover, 21.gif keriboi left a comment mistaking my entry for one from Art Roflmao. I take that as a compliment.

Post-challenge notes:
About as expected. My sense of humor was not widely appreciated inthis challenge, but the average commenters vote of 7 tells me I did hit the mark with some people.

LOL! I didn't vote on this challenge. If I did, I would've mistaken this one for mine and skipped it anyway. ;-)

I was one of your 10s, & I think this is totally Zen because of the giggle factor, & very well done. I'm shocked & stunned this didn't make the front page. What's wrong with everyone?

Meets challenge, but some added DOF would really help the shot IMO. The blur in the background is distracting in this application.
