Chris Lindland (who founded the awesome Betabrand writes, "I went to college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with my partner in kudzu crime, Anthony Jaffe, who now lives in Atlanta. For years, we've talked about building a giant monument to Godzilla out of the famed Vine That Ate The South. While everyone knows what Godzilla is, for the most part only Southerners are truly familiar with kudzu. It's an invasive vine that grows up to a foot a day and fully envelopes trees, telephone poles, and buildings -- making them look like giant, leafy monsters.

We've amassed a team of architects, builders, gardeners, and topiary artists to make this come to life next spring. Where it will grow remains to be determined; we actually think that finding Kudzilla's home will be one of the most entertaining parts of the project.
