Cybersurfing: Mothra attacks Olympics

Mothra attacks BeijingThe Sportsman’s Daily has a reasonably amusing satirical post about the closing ceremonies of the Olympics being ruined by Mothra:

After pulling off spectacular opening and closing ceremonies during the 2008 Summer Olympics, the city of Beijing was met with unexpected disaster immediately after the Olympic torch was extinguished. Movie monster Mothra attacked the city on its way home to Japan.
“I was on my way home from Monster Island for a little weekend get together with Godzilla, Rodan, and Varan and decided to kill some time by wreaking havoc on one of my favorite cities,” said Mothra. “We had all just watched A Clockwork Orange, and I was really pumped for a little senseless ultra-violence. Sorry if I ruined everybody’s day.”

The post gets extra credit for referencing Varan, a rather obscure member of the Japanese monster club, but we do ponder the reason for casting Mothra as the monster of destruction in this tale. Also, the article assumes that Mothra is male, whereas the films present the creature as feminine.
