Skinnysaurus?

Apparently:

American researchers say they have uncovered a mathematical mistake made by the dinosaur boffinry community, meaning that the weight of live dinos has long been massively overestimated. In a development with devastating consequences for various much-fancied works of fiction, it now appears that in fact the dinosaurs were significantly slenderer than had been thought.


Which makes me wonder how much quicker they were. Could a velociraptor have been even more scary than previously thought? Quite possibly.

Or...everyone and everything was weak and slow as fuck.

Dinosaurs? I shit 'em.
Extinction is too good for them.

Watch for the Fat Acceptance Movement to denounce the findings.

I'd like to order half a dozen velociraptors to be delivered to the House of Commons today asap - can anyone help?

The creationists will love this.

The Velociraptor was in real life about the size of a turkey - Spielburhurg made them bigger to make his film more exciting....

A scene involving a main character being chased, out-thought and torn to pieces by an extinct carnivorous turkey was never likely to put bums on seats.

On the other hand the thought of "Turkeys eating humans" might have got the veggies excited
