On Satire Bits: Vol 68

Hooray! The humid air has left Cincinnati and we will have outstanding weather for a few days. Woo hoo!!!!

Wednesday is National Navajo Code-Talkers Day. For those that don’t know it’s a fascinating story, so click here for more information.

Yesterday’s post was a bit heavy, but a special thanks for my international readers for your patience. However, for your mid-week dose of satire, I searched The Onion’s vault for headlines about dinosaurs and related prehistoric humor. Any favorites?

Do you recall the Dinosaurs TV show by Muppet creator Jim Henson? As an extra bonus, I’ve added a short clip after the headlines. Enjoy!

Have a good rest of the week!

  1. When our son was small, he loved to say “DaDaDaDa”. I used to coach him to say “Mama”. He’d look at me with a gleam in his eye and laugh and say “DaDaDaDa”

    I am still recovering.

  3. Glad to be reminded about Trilobites after so many years away from my high school biology class. Also glad that evolution is chugging along OK. Like National Geographic Magazine’s article said a year or so back, “Evolution? Why it’s all around us!”

    Buying tickets on my next trip!

    Those were really quite funny. I might know several people directly descended from the mysterious Shoposaurus!

    We had a monster storm late yesterday, took out entire sections of our fence and there are pieces of our roof in our yard. It was quite interesting. They are saying we will have a ‘cold snap’ now with temps in the 90’s for the next several days.

  5. Okay, Frank, these are all so good. I suppose my favorite, should I be forced to pick one, would be the one about dinosaurs being extinct before the invention of bazookas. What a hoot!

    Glad the weather has improved.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

  6. The ‘perfect’ weather we’ve had lately is drifting over to your neighborhood. Enjoy. It won’t last forever.

    My imagination stirred at the thought of a xxx dinosaur park in NV. ???
    The bazooka headline made me flinch. That concept would be a reality TV show today like American Hoggers, etc.

    A few years ago, we drove through KY on our way to Louisville. We passed the Creationism museum. It was all I could do to keep my wheels on the road. We didn’t stop.

    Have another nice day. It’s on me. 🙂
