69th anniversary movie Godzilla Minus One: the Cumzilla godzilla figure

In the world of pop culture, some icons stand the test of time, and Godzilla is undoubtedly one of them. From its inception in 1954 to the upcoming release of Godzilla Minus One in 2023, the legendary kaiju has been stomping its way through the entertainment industry for nearly seven decades. As we prepare to celebrate the 69th anniversary of this beloved franchise, it's worth taking a moment to appreciate the humor and memes that have emerged over the years, including the playful math that's got everyone saying, "nice."

2023-1954 = 69

In 1954, Japan introduced the world to a cinematic behemoth: Godzilla. The film, directed by Ishiro Honda, marked the beginning of a franchise that would become a global phenomenon. Its impact on cinema, especially in the kaiju genre, is immeasurable. But in the age of memes and internet humor, even a fearsome creature like Godzilla isn't safe from playful arithmetic.

I just realized this year is Godzilla's 69th anniversary....
