Because of this, back in 2012, I decided to doodle a little cartoon of this and post it on my facebook page. Here it is below.
Well I never would have guessed, this thing actually went viral as soon as a certain popular science-themed facebook group caught wind of it and posted it to their page. I had people all over the world sharing this cartoon and laughing at it. I started getting texts from people I know telling me they saw it on their newsfeed...but not from me! (If I remember correctly the group did credit me as the artist, as they should have.)
|In case you were wondering the nonavian dinosaurs pictured are from left yo right: Dakotaraptor, Tyrannosaurus, and Dryptosaurus. All three members of the coelurosaur group, which also includes birds.|
Well this year I decided to do that cartoon again with a bit more care put in. (a bit...its still a sketch basically with paint on it.) Enjoy!
As you enjoy your meal this Thanksgiving, remember to respect your bird because millions of years ago, its relatives were eating ours!
