|Surely this was just a fever dream, right?|
To answer this question, let's look at the definition of the word kaiju. Well, apparently the word literally just means "monster" and what we generally think of in regards to the term is actually daikaiju, which are giant monsters. Interesting. So does this mean that technically any monster is a kaiju? Bigfoot is a kaiju? What about the Fouke Monster in my home state of Arkansas? Or the Okeechobee Werewolf? Wait, does this make werewolves kaiju? I mean, I knew there was a giant werewolf out the on film, but do the others count too? Is Dracula a kaiju? Was Hotel Transylvania just one big lighthearted kaiju bash? Whoah, whoah, whoah! I've got to slow down, as I'm making my own head spin with all these further raised questions coming from this.

|Probably not, but I'll have to do.|
|Finally, I have an excuse to use this.|
|And, hey! It had a giant monster in it too! How about that? Topical.|
|The truth is though that all the argument I really need is in this one image I threw together in five minutes.|
|Please excuse me.|
