Caption Contest →
Given the winners and runners-up for the previous contest, something tells me I should keep an eye on this space if only for mocking purposes. Stale humor and mediocrity: the avant garde in the caption contest industry. I won’t be surprised if I find such ideas as, “And I thought my wife was a terrible driver!” or, “The invisible car is amazing, Q, but why did you cram a...

Q: How do we know the extinction of the dinosaurs wasn’t due to a worldwide pandemic, either bacterial or viral? A: Because that’s too retarded.
More information about the new dino growth analyses that may wipe out about 1/3 of known species as being juveniles of other existing species. This one has an awesome diagram to illustrate how three supposed genera are actually three stages in the development of Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis.
