The pigeons walk fascinated him to no end. It looked so damned cool. A confidence, beauty and grace this fat creature exhibited, that he himself did not. He was a man of a somewhat larger frame or in much blunter terms….. He was fat. This did not bother him, but by the way he carried himself it sure looked like it did. Emotional baggage, very heavy is what his posture indicated. Yet no truth laid in this presumption of him. “I would love to follow in this pigeons footsteps and exhibit the grace it does and prove that we larger folk are just as confident as those thinner specimens!” He said to himself excitedly. So follow in this pigeons is exactly what he tried to do, but as he got closer, it flew away! “Dammit!” He yelled. He tried again, “Aww, Hell Nah!” The pigeon probably thought as this large man approached and also flew away. Again and again this man tried to follow in the footsteps of these graceful, elegant creatures and failed he did again and again. He was a defeated man, lost in purpose and his walk now matched that defeat, and his emotional baggage was now indeed heavy. “Try to walk like a pigeon?” He thought, “Nevermore!”

This Exists: Godzilla vs. Charles Barkley comic book
I was doing some browsing on the Internet to research into some good Godzilla comic book starting points (there aren’t many good Godzilla titles, honestly), since I’ve been reading the incredible James Stokoe’s Godzilla: Half-Century War, and I came across one of the most absurd comic books ever published. Godzilla vs. Charles Barkley.
I guess back in the early 90’s, there were Nike television commercials where Charles Barkley really went one on one against the big radiated lizard himself on the streets of Tokyo. So Dark Horse Comics decided to make an adaptation of the commercial.
The comic is about a little kid who gives Barkley a silver coin that makes him grow Godzilla-sized so they can go one and on and Godzilla can go HAM on Charles’ motherfucking assssss. But Barkley wins (I think), and we’re only blessed with Godzilla wearing his own special shoes, Barkley being way taller than he usually is, and a couple of hilarious splash pages. Check some caps above.
I should be ordering my copy of the physical comic book soon to add to my novelty collection. Mint condition runs around a little less than $20, and I can’t NOT have this.
