Preface: Well, Godzilla has taken on every other monster, I think. And, in honor of the folksingers brave return to Oz, where he was almost squished by Godzilla on his last visit, I figured we needed a new round robin story, so.....What the hell?

*************************************************

The Sydney harbor was rather quiet on this particular night..........

AW LARRY!! I've got LOTS of work to do today and now you've got me formulating again!! And I wanted to get a few good nights sleep before Sunday! I'll just have to drink some Vegemite soup before retiring the next few nights to keep Godz and Clam out of my dreams.

.....but that was about to change. It seems that not only was Sydney about to be visited by an American folksinger, which many people actually knew about and planned for, but it was to be visited by an univited guest as well.
Folksingers are, by nature, both informative and migratory. This is well documented in print, in recordings using various technologies , by the web, and of course by the old fashioned way, word of mouth.
The words and songs of folksingers travel the world, even to places the folksinger may have seldom or not ever been.Even places like Tokyo harbor.
Godzilla has been known to spend time in Tokyo harbor. It's also known that Godzilla is a big fan of Sushi. Of course Godzilla is a few million years old, and remembers the days when he could get GIANT CLAM sushi, even before the days of soy sauce, wasabi and hot saki.Even minus the condiments, GIANT CLAM sushi was always his favorite.Of course now, GIANT CLAMS were thought to be extinct.
Japenese officials were worried. Godzilla had been reducing the sushi supply of Japan on an alarming scale. The Japenese officials had a plan.
Having dealt with Godzilla for decades, Japenese scientists had devised a method of communicating to him. So, through huge loudspeakers aimed over Tokyo harbor blared the following words in Godzillaese "FAMOUS GIANT CLAM EXPERT AND FOLKSINGER TO ARRIVE SOON IN SYDNEY HARBOR.....HE KNOWS WHERE THE GIANT CLAMS IS"...................................................

Now Godzilla had been told, by loud speaker, in 1980, about a band in New York called the Blue Oyster Cult, and had made his way there only to discover he had been tricked and these musicians knew nothing of seafood of any kind. So he once again thought this might be trickery by Japanese officials to rid the harbour of him.

But a GIANT CLAM! this was to much to resist, so he made his way back to Sydney only to discover that the Folkslinger who knew where this tasty morsel was hidden was in fact on this very day making his way north to the beautiful sub tropical city of Brisbane.

Now Gozilla was very afraid of Brisbane because just north of there lived a Blunderite who had been born in the same year as he and knew that four years ago he had tried to squish that very same Folkslinger in Sydney.

He knew she possessed one of his most feared substances called VEGEMITE. But the pull of the Giant Clam was so strong he could not resist. Little did he know that this very Blunderite and her daughter (who looked remarkably like the daughter of a famous Clam Slayer), would be keeping a close eye on the Folkslinger especially at his concert on Sunday night. She had gathered other Brisbane Blunderites to ensure the Folkslingers safety. In fact they had bought up all the tables in front of the stage to act as a human shield in case he showed looking to Godzillanap the Folkslinger.

They had not informed the Folkslinger of the possible arrival of Godz.......

....because they don't get folkslinger visits all too often, and they didn't want to scare him away. They also knew since the folkslinger was not acustomed to being upside 24 hours a day, they figured he might be a bit confused and might not notice if a firebreathing prehistoric monster attended one of his shows. He might think it was just another heckler, or so they thought. They didn't count on the fact that the folkslinger had some sort of ad hoc training in the art of thinking in an altered state, sort of a benefit from the 60's he may have thought he would never need. He knew better, and his senses were keen and aware should Godzilla come a calling.
In any event, it would seem that those trying to put the tables in a circle to protect the folkslinger were being rather unrealistic. I mean at best, they would simply become Godzilla toe-jam with the folkslinger, not protect him.Of course they were so delighted to hear a live folkslinger show, that they put their safety and that of the folkslinger on the back burner. In their excitement and their glee, the numbskulls forgot to pack the vegemite to ward off Godzilla. As has been stated before , Vegemite is to Godzilla(and many other living things) what Kyrptonite is to Superman, what logic and common sense are to George W. Bush, what one north pole on a supermagnet is to the north pole of another. They repell each other with an ALMOST irresistable force. Would that force be stronger than the lure of GIANT CLAM sushi to Godzilla?This remains to be seen. The folkslinger however had, (unknown to his brave yet clueless protectors), filled the body of his Blue Underwater Playing Carbon Fiber Guitar with a few pounds of vegemite, just in case. It did affect the high end and the midrange a bit, but the sound guy worked it out..............

Now when Godz did actually show up it was by a crafty unexpected entrance from backstage. He jumped out from behind the curtain and grabbed the Folkslinger in his reptilian hands! All hell broke loose but Dave hushed everyone so he could communicate with the interloper.
Dave was an expert understanding Japanese by telepathy. And of course as Godz could not speak this was the only way he could communicate his demands. Dave interpreted Godz out loud to all. "Where is the CLAM!!!!!!!!!! " said Godz (by telepathy remember) The Folkslinger refused to give in and Godz proceeded to meake threatening moves toward him.
BobbieB could not stand the the thought of the Folkslinger coming to any harm so she burst out with "It's hiding up on the Great Barrier Reef!!!"
"Alright" yelled Godz (thru Dave) "take me there now, or else!!", as he tightened his grip on the Folkslinger.
Louise was mortified so her niece -in-law, who works in PR, took control (she has red hair so you know what THAT means). "Don't be so STUPID you ignorant reptile! The Great Barrier Reef IS in Queensland, but this is a BIG state, even bigger than TEXAS and we can't just take you there, it's a long way"
"Well get me a boat!" growled Godz (Dave)"And we'll go up the coast til we get there!"
Meanwhile the Folkslinger was frantically gestulating at his Blue Underwater Guitar. Louise's daughter (who looks remarkably like Rubens daughter) found this very criptic because she knew this guitar could not be damaged by water, so why was the folkslinger so worried about
taking it in a boat?
Louise who was still in a BlundeDaze because of finally being in the presence of the Folkslinger after waiting four long years, was stirred from her reverie when she noticed the Folkslinger was actually pointing INSIDE the Blue Underwater guitar. Suddenly she saw a flash of yellow and thought "How did HE manage to pack some Vegemite when he didn't even know about the Godz threat when we knukleheads forgot all about it (just like the camera LAST time).

Louise came to her senses, leaped onto the stage and with one fell swoop ripped the Vegemite out of the Blue Underwater guitar, being carefull not to damage it of course. With some tricky wrist action she spun the lid off the jar, scooped out some of the black goo and thru it in Godz's face!

He dropped the Folkslinger and roared crashing his way blindly backstag then out the stage door onto the street. Panamonium broke out (just like you see in the movies). Godz ran to the nearby Story Bridge, jumped off into the Brisbane River, and began washing the dreaded, dangerous (well for Godz and people named Larry anyway) substance from hs body.

Meanwhile, back at the Judith Wright Centre the Blunderites (Brisbane Chapter) were sending an SOS Stateside for urgent help from the Blunderteam........................................

....As Godzilla was attempted to wash the dreaded WMD (vegemite) from his person, a mile or so down river, two little beady CLAM eyes pierced the surface of the water in his direction. Godzilla was unaware that the GIANT CLAM was watching and now stalking him, although from a safe distance. The CLAM did not fear Godzilla, so much as the music that was being played nearby. For as we all know, CLAMS hate music. One mile seemed a safe distance to the CLAM.
Meanwhile, back at the venue,the blunderites from Oz were disapointed when they got a return message from the stateside Blunderteam telling them that the blunderteam was unavailable for deployment.The blunderteam had been training for deployment to Oz, but part of the training involved standing on their heads for 4 weeks, and they were only up to week two. That, and the fact that there was a week long Star Trek marathon being broadcast by one of the cable channels.
After learning this news, the Oz blunderites were dismayed, until they looked out the window of the venue only to see The Australian Olympic Kangaroo Boxing Team surround the venue in a protective circle........

As you can see from the pics Ceashel posted over on the adg in Bris thread Godz did in fact return to the Judith Wright Centre where Louise lured him into the women's room while the Blunderites posed for the photos with the folkslinger. As you can see in one particular photo Godz escaped the womens room, pushed his way into a Group W photo, and was just about to get his slimey claws on the Folkslinger when BobbieB gave that famous whistle, with a gum leaf, that was heard at beginning of every episode of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. Well that got the Kangaroo boxing team hopping and they came to the Folksingers rescue.........

......the boxing kangaroos beat on Godzilla's toenails without mercy, since that's all they could reach. Once in a while during this battle, some of the more fit kangaroos were able to hop up high enough to deliver some left hooks to Godzilla's ankles, but it was having little effect. About the only effect it was having, was to alter Godzilla's foot work and balance, and as he was tripping over the brave, yet moronic marsupial minions, he made the mistake of wandering over to the line for the ladies room where he unknowingly cut into the line.Godzilla's eyes widened, the kangaroos fled in haste, and the Foster's filled ladies in the restroom line proceeded to kick the living shit out of Godzilla until he beat it out to the river where he jumped in head first fearing for his life. A resounding "CLUNK!" was heard for miles as Godzilla had dived headfirst right into the shell of THE GIANT CLAM...........
