Thebestdinosaur.com claims inaccurately that the Stegosaurus was indeed the best dinosaur.
Firstly, I must admit that this simple web page is a bit low hanging fruit. Even for this blog, which thrives splashing around in the muddy waters of non-journalistic integrity and self servitude.
I mean, really the only two prerequisites for blogging is an ego and a keyboard.
And a certain level of vitriol for a hundred and fifty million year old dinosaur.
In case you’re already starting to put this together? Yes, this is a hit piece on the Stegosaurus. So if you’re a Stegosaurus sympathizer ya might as well X outta here now.
But thebestdinosaur.com asked for this. It is literally the image above and the proclamation of best dinosaur ever. It’s bold, I’ll give it that but I can’t just let it go.
For back up I turned to my best friend, John who doesn’t know shit about dinosaurs but really likes the Jurassic Park movies. Here is the exchange:
Was that not enough to convince you that website is full of outrageous lies? No? Well let me drop some paleontology on your ass.
- The Stegosaurus had a brain the size of a walnut.
- The stegosaurus ate rocks.
- The stegosaurus’ bite was weaker than a human bite.
- Stegosaurus literally means, “Roofed Lizard”
- It had plates and spikes on its body and scientists still don’t even know why or even care!
Honestly at this rate, the more I read about the Stegosaurus the more I am convinced I could have killed one with my bare hands. Thats a pretty weak ass dinosaur. Fuck the Stegosaurus. I’ll see you next week.
