So far it’s only happened in poorly overdubbed films, but, in the “just in case” file, we find this:
The Japanese Minister of Defense is calling for efforts to work out the military and legal issues that would result if Japanese were attacked by extraterrestrials.
Two members of the Japanese cabinet have expressed personal beliefs in the existence of extraterrestrials out there, somewhere. Because of Japans 1947 constitution, there are restrictions on what actions the military can take.
Gosh, Dennis Kucinich is running for president of the wrong country. However, it’s good to contingency plan just in case alien civilizations are running low on fuel for their sushi-powered spacecraft.
The first order of business for the Minister of Defense is to to figure out, in the event of an extraterrestrial attack on Japan, whose side Godzilla would take, as that could make a world of difference.
I personally think that Japan only needs to worry about an invasion of aliens if their country somehow is moved next to Mexico and the U.S. Congress is in charge of forumlating their border security plans — or lack thereof.
How do you say “It’s a cookbook!” in Japanese?
