how the fucking hell does one not notice that the pooch they purchased over the internet has cloven hooves? I've never seen a dog with hooves, and I doubt anyone else on the face of the planet has, either.

The Japanese have tentacle monsters, hello kitty and dogs with hooves. Makes sense to me.

So true, so true.

Tentacle monsters are not unique to the Japanese however :)

I think the 30,000 leagues under the sea tentacle monster is pretty cool. Additionally, H.P. Lovecraft's Cthuhlu (sp?) is another great western-based tentacle monster.

However, there's a big difference in the western tentacle monster and the eastern. It seems, in the west, we have abandoned the tentacle monster (most of the references are old) while the Japanese continue to embrace the myth and modernize it. (hentai anyone?)

I will not disagree that the western tentacle monster has seemingly fallen off the face of the earth. Lets not get started on hentai >.> <.<

How about an upsurgence in tentacle moster movies? I always thought a tentacle monster would have made Titanic much much better.

Well, really, anything would have made Titanic better. But a tentacle monster would have been the best option, I think.

Also? Hello Kitty meets Cthulhu; how appropriate.
