What's the big deal? It looks circumsized.

That's a really ugly menorah. Unfortunately, there's another just like it inside Northgate Mall. Fucking thing isn't even lit up.

C'mon, guys. You want to celebrate, don't half-ass the job of it, all right?

Regarding hannukiah, when religious Jews and Israelis refer to a "menorah," it refers to the seven branched menorah that was in the Temple. A hannukiah is used to specify the nine branched menorah used only for Hannukah celebrations.
