New dinosaur called the Chicken From Hell
Washington Post ^ | March 19, 2014 | Joel Achenbach

Posted on 03/20/2014 6:15:25 AM PDT by C19fan

Scientists have discovered a freakish, birdlike species of dinosaur — 11 feet long, 500 pounds, with a beak, no teeth, a bony crest atop its head, murderous claws, prize-fighter arms, spindly legs, a thin tail and feathers sprouting all over the place. Officially, it’s a member of a group of dinosaurs called oviraptorosaurs.

Unofficially, it’s the Chicken From Hell.

Time to make up a new dinosaur. And how convenient, it looks like a bird, proving evolution (the word was mentioned 6 times in the article).

I seem to recall there was a time when politicians were promising everyone “ a chicken in every pot”. Don’t know if it is relevant to this discovery and todays economy.

Oh well, let’s award a government grant using multi-millions of taxpayer money so we can clone one of these suckers and feed the world. Then maybe the Big-O can promise us “a chicken in every pot”. A sort of redistribution of chicken to the poor who have been denied their fair share.

P.S. You can keep your pot if you want it. Those without a pot to piss in will be issued one at taxpayer expense by the new government pots for the needy program.

"What on God’s green earth is that?"

It's a Rosadelaurosaur, a Liberal from Connecticut.

They believe in redistribution of wealth.

This particular lizard has a net worth of $20million!

To try to figure out how dinosaurs might have walked, scientists put a plunger on a chicken's butt.

That is the bird from hell. Has been known to kill people. Went on a trail in Australia through a nature park. At the head of the trail it warned “If you come upon a Cassowary, raise your arms over your head to make yourself appear larger than the Cassowary.”

I looked at my friend “APPEAR larger than the bird!!??”

Tastes like Chicken.

Encounter one in a kitchen, and the only question is, who is on the menu?

In fact, evolution-theory is the science (whether you consider it "junk" or not), which underlies all work in this area.
This particular example is an unusually interesting evolutionary outcome.

Not to be confused with:

As a politician her whole life. It used to be that entrepreneurs and adventurers made the big bucks for big risks.

Now it’s the crony capitalists for no risk.
