Cupid is out. As of now the face of Valentine’s Day is the most romantic dinosaur


And now it’s time for— More tales from the classroom!

At a middle school today, I told a student that I lived in Idaho, he naturally wanted to tell me about his one trip to Idaho. He had the great privilege of going to a fair, and when he was at the top of the ferris wheel he could see something walking in from the desert. Based on his view and his avid study of dinosaurs he naturally recognized it for the velociraptor it was.

The last sighting of the elusive vel-ida-ciraptor, from Meriwether Lewis' lost diary.

Read that paragraph again and try to keep a straight face, I dare you. Credit to my acting teachers over the years.

Wait! As always, this gets better. The other kid at our table was smart enough to recognize that what the first kid saw was most likely not a real velociraptor but actually a hologram projection.
