eRacism: Making Racism Extinct
This article I was reading was both interesting and educational as I learned there was a dinosaur that once roamed the Earth with a vacuum cleaner like ability to suck up food. Seemed innocent enough, right? Not so fast.
Discoverer Paul Sereno named the elephant-sized animal Nigersaurus taqueti, an acknowledgment of the African country Niger and a French paleontologist, Philippe Taquet.
Are you bullshitting me? Really, that’s the name you came up with Mr. Scientist? Let me guess, its diet was exclusively that of a small chicken like animal? Thank God he didn’t discover a dinosaur’s skeletal remains in the Irish country-side that couldn’t stop drinking, even if it killed them. “Ladies and gentleman, I discovered a new extinct species today. I give you, the Micasaurus!” Or maybe one discovered just outside of San Fransisco with strange mating habits that is believed to have contributed to its extinction… the Assasaurus (aka, Barney)! Wait, how ’bout one discovered in Italy that had skin like a terrycloth jump suite. Ladies and gentleman, I give you… the Wopasaurus!!!!
Enough with the racism scientists. Please, just leave me alone. Can’t we all just get along? Wait, I’ve got another one. An elephant type dinosaur with ties to Israel and connections with big oil… the Neoconasaurus! Talk about selling out your people. A dinosaur with connections to big oil.
