Godzilla Cloud
Status: Undetermined
image I don't have any information about this picture. It's just an image of a cloud shaped like Godzilla that I came across on the web. Is it real or fake? Well, it looks real to me, and I can't see any obvious signs of photoshopping. But I couldn't say for sure. Also, I have no idea what type of cloud this is.

Repect the giant lizard for he is our new God! This is clearly a sign that the world is run by giant lizards, surely!

Ooh, Godzilla vs The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

whoa- I did a double take when I saw the topic on this one. Instead of a cloud that looks like Gojira, I thought it said "Godzilla'S Cloud", as if refering to some blast of noxious gas released by the Big G. His fiery, radioactive breath is bad enough, but a fart from under the tail of the World's Greatest Monster would indeed spell trouble for Tokyo. Actually, I don't know how they spell trouble in Tokyo, but I'm sure they spell Great Noxious Fart as "G,W,B"... Sayonara

I'm the guy whose blog it's on, and for the record, I just found it on a Godzilla message board a while back. I haven't a clue where it originated from either, just that it was supposedly an untouched photo.

Yes, we are in collusion with the Illuminati for world domination. This is only the beginning.

Wow. A cloud that vaugely resembles something. Who'd have thought.

It's a Cumulus Congestus.

This looks pretty like a real Cumulo-nimbus caught in wind of differeing speeds at differing heights. The fuzzy resemblence makes me think it could well be genuine, as a Photoshopper(?) would have gone too far in getting the back spines right.

I have seen formations like this here in NZ.

cool mad
Alright, have you ever seen one of these before? [pulls out a silver pen which emits a blue flash]
big surprise
This was not photoshopped. if it were photoshopped, someone would have spent more time on the back spikes and tail.
Oh, and the M.I.B. does not exist.
cool smirk

This photo was taken by a friend of mine -OFF THE COAST OF JAPAN- he took the picture a few years ago when he visited the country. I know it sounds too good to be true, but I've seen the original photo on the camera
