A Whole Bunch Of People On Facebook Thought Steven Spielberg Killed A Real Dinosaur
Buzzfeed ^ | 07/11/2014 | Luke Lewis

Posted on 07/12/2014 9:09:11 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Fact check: The triceratops became extinct 66 million years ago. The director of Jurassic Park has never shot one for sport.

Internet humourist Jay Branscomb posted it on Facebook with the caption: “Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.”

A lot of people didn’t get the joke, and thought Spielberg really had shot a dinosaur.

This person called him an “inhumane prick”...

“Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER.”

“Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct. Sickos like this kill every last one of them as soon as they are discovered. He should be in prison.”

“He should be killed instead. Beautiful creature innocently living millions of years ago then this monster comes along.”

As long as they can vote, that’s the main thing.

The fact that there are now no living dinosaurs speaks volumes about Speilberg’s treachery.

Even worse are the Speilberg-Dinosaur-Hunting denialists.

Just as using a phone and a pen to govern a nation doesn’t work, using a “smart” phone and Facebook as your primary source of knowledge and information DOES NOT make you SMART!

Even worse !!! before he killed this magnificent animal - He profited from its' existence first, before killing it. He used it's efforts and likeness to greedily profit with no benefit to the poor creature that performed for him. He is also a greedy Capitalist !

He disgusts me in so many ways. HE should be shot. And his extreme greedy profits should be divided up to all the less fortunate dinosaurs.

Its hard to believe that anybody really believed this. Isn’t it common knowledge that dinosaurs died out millions of years ago? Don’t they teach kids that in school anymore??

Well ? ! Just because Barney was pigmentally blessed, more than the less fortunate grey dinosaurs, do YOU really think only Barney should reap the huge rewards ?!? I am willing to bet even, that Barney grew up in a stable household. Why should HE have all the dinosaur advantages ? ! ?

Yes, some people actually do live in a bubble and have 30-70 IQ ratings.
The same people who voted for Obama.

Putting aside laughing at the idiots for a moment, this is a Triceratops skull that is on display in one of our county buildings. It was discovered in about 1960 or so. Just something kinda cool:
