Pachycephalosaurus speaks

I just want to set the record straight here, because a lot of talk has been going about how Maiasaura is some kind of maternal hero. Just because someone is named "good mother lizard" doesn't mean she is, you know what I mean? Look, I'm not saying she was the worst or anything, because we all know about the time Baryonyx's kids were in the car when she got stopped driving home from her three-martini book group, but seriously, it's pretty rich to give ALL the credit to Ms. Sits-on-a-nest when Triceratops fought Tyrannosaurus for her kids. I know I can't compete with that. And Spinosaurus endured for twenty-five million years, I mean you can't do that without doing something right, parenting-wise, right? I just don't want anyone getting the idea that whatsherface is some kind of supermom just because she brought those cupcakes with the butterflies on them (god it gave me carpal tunnel just looking at those) or just because she happened to get fossilized near a nest, ok?

yes, virginia

OD brought home 7th grade "anonymous questions" from biology class. Sex educators, you had better step it UP. To wit:

"Is it possible that when a boys sperm and a girls egg join together that the child might have a penious and a virginia?"

how do teachers keep from snorting out loud, I ask?
