What’s In A Name?

“I’ve brought in a few outside consultants who have some fresh ideas on how to deal with the kaiju,” Newton Geiszler told Pentecost. “Oddly, they’re all named Hannibal.” He waved the four men forward. “Okay, guys, let’s hear your suggestions.”

The first Hannibal was a swarthy bearded man, clad in armor of bronze scales with a plumed helmet, who brandished a sword and declared “There is only one way to fight these monsters. We must march against them on the backs of elephants.”

“I don’t think we can beat them,” said the next Hannibal, a dark-haired man who wore jeans and a Stetson. “I say we hide out in the West, under aliases like ‘Smith’ and ‘Jones’, until they go away.”

The third Hannibal grinned, took his cigar from his mouth, and blew out a cloud of smoke. “No need for that,” he said. “Just lock me and my team in a toolshed for a few hours and we’ll improvise weapons out of junk that’ll chase these things back to the depths.”

“My solution is far simpler and more… elegant,” said the final Hannibal, his lips curling in a sneer. “We eat them. With fava beans and a nice Chianti.”
