How could Stephen Spielberg kill a Triceratops?
Daily Mail UK ^ | july 11, 2014 | David Mccormack

Posted on 07/11/2014 8:06:39 AM PDT by sevinufnine

Gullible internet users in uproar over vintage photo of Jurassic Park director posing with 'prey'.

A photo of the Hollywood director on the set of his 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park was posted online last Sunday. Facebook meme-maker and wit Jay Branscomb added a jokey caption claiming the photo showed a 'despicable' hunter. Not everyone was able to appreciate his sarcastic sense of humor and criticized the 'animal killer'. One commenter labelled Spielberg an 'inhumane p****' despite Triceratops being extinct for 66 million years. ‘Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER,’ she ended her impassioned rant. >>>> (I couldn't make this up if I tried.)

A number of other commenters also apparently fail to realize that the triceratops has been extinct for 66 million years ago and that Spielberg, one of the most famous movie makers of all time, is sitting beside a mechanical prop from a movie which has grossed more than $1 billion and won three Academy Awards.

My first thought! There is no further explanation necessary for Barack H. Obama.

This is an example of why we shouldn't pay so much attention to Leftist "outrage".

Being the UK will publish photos of naked people but refuse to publish “offensive” words....my guess is “prick”. Heck, I’ve seen this publication *** out the word fag! No kidding.

I suspect many of the ‘outraged’ commenters were just playing along with the joke. On the internet, it’s all a game.

OK, so it’s a big joke and we all did nothing about it and now this magnificent creature is extinct. That just shows that all these jokes about the Mexican jumping mouse just have to stop or they’ll be next.

Now you know why advertising works. The average ‘consumer’ will just believe anything they see without thinking twice about it.

I agree.

Now, if Spielberg were photographed as if on “safari” in the seat of a Toyota CJ, THAT would be different!

Those 1970's Cylons can use all the help they can get:


Especially since they were actually replaced by these:

With a .50 BMG, I'm guessing. I certainly wouldn't want to try it with anything less than .416 Ruger. Them Triceratopses, they get dangerous when they're wounded.

That’s actually a wig that Tricia Helfer wore. Some of the other “6’s” had her real hair.

Wig or no wig, she didn’t do much for me. I never really got past the first episode of the remake. I preferred the late ‘70s version. Even had the Cyclon action figures as a little kid.
