How to eat a Triceratops: A visual guide

As Fowler and his colleagues examined the various types of bite mark on the skulls, they were intrigued by the extensive puncture and pull marks on the neck frills on some of the specimens. At first, this seemed to make no sense. “The frill would have been mostly bone and keratin,” says Fowler. “Not much to eat there.” The pulling action and the presence of deep parallel grooves led the team to realise that these marks were probably not indicative of actual eating, but repositioning of the prey. The scientists suggest that the frills were in the way of Tyrannosaurus as it was trying to get at the nutrient-rich neck muscles.

STEP 3: PULL VIA NOSE!

STEP 4: ENJOY!

Did Jesus ride on a dinosaur?

Apparently, yes (if you take this page from a Bible Colouring Book to heart)*

*Also possibly a spoof – since I can’t find an original source for this (it’s basically all over the web).

I have no explanation for this, except to say that it is awesome.
