You Wouldn’t Want Anyone to Go Extinct, After All

I like how Dino-Hockey, by Lisa Wheeler and Barry Gott, and just reissued in paperback, appeared on a list of Best Hockey Books for Kids last month, as spotted on Chasing Spaghetti.

I like how there’s a blog called HockeyBookReviews.com.

But I love how the hockey-playing dinosaurs are wearing little helmets.

'Cause they have little brains? (That's what we were taught back in the [mumble-mumble] ages when I went to school.)

In that case, according to what was still in books when I went to school, Stegosaurus would need an extra helmet for its hips.

(Since then, if I recall right, books have started to reflect the paleontological consensus that Stegosaurus had some sort of gland in its hindquarters, but not a back-up brain. Still not a cognitive whiz, though.)

Ooh. I missed that piece of teaching. But you know, I have a friend who maintains that there are a whole lot of people whose brains reside in their hindquarters. I can finally suggest a possible lineage. . .
