44 - The Dinosaur Mystery

"Hey, guys! It sure is a mystery why now, in 1995, this Tyrannosaurus rex is depicted in an upright 'tripod' position, even though scientists have known since the late 1960s that this was physically impossible?"

"You're right, Henry! Even though it took a long time for popular perception to catch up with reality, you'd think the change had caught on when the National Museum of Natural History finally changed the pose of their T. rex skeleton three years ago!"

"Exactly, Violet! And the situation was finally settled in the minds of the public when an accurately postured Tyrannosaur was portrayed in the popular Steven Spielberg film Jurassic Park, released just last year!"

"Do you think it could just be that our cover artist is a lazy idiot?"

"What the heck are you two talking about?"

"Hold on, I'll point at it."
