Boarzilla

I knew the day would come when we would be dealing with the impending crisis of a real-life Godzilla. However, the monster is not a fire-breathing dinosaur tearing down high tension wires in Tokyo. Rather, the threat comes from radioactive boars in Germany.

As reported in Der Spiegel, radioactive boars menace the forests of Bavaria.

Coincidentally, I heard Blue Oyster Cult’s song, “Godzilla” this morning. Perhaps a remake is due. The lyrics could go like this:

Marauding through the parks of Berlin/He munches on radioactive mushrooms, Boarzilla!

Butchers sell his contaminated meat/containing high levels of cesium-137, Boarzilla!

 

Oh no, they say he’s got to go!/Go Go, Boarzilla, yeah.

Oh no, why does my pulled pork glow?/Go Go Boarzilla, yeah.

History shows again and again how nature points up the folly of men, Boarzilla!

The geniuses who created Godzilla were truly prophets.
