Apparently, All the Interesting Dinosaurs Have Been Discovered

As a child of Jurassic Park, I still get a rush of adrenaline when one of my pals from the San Diego Junior Archaeological Society calls me on the phone I had installed just for the purpose (it's shaped like a Dimetrodon) to tell me about a new species.

Imagine my disappointment, then, when I was informed by a decidedly glum Tommy Franklin (Junior Dino-Cadet, Pteranodon Unit) that scientists have just discovered a dinosaur dubbed the cow of the Mesozoic era. I was so upset I dropped and shattered the commemorative Dr. Hammond glass Id been holding.

A cow?! Dinosaurs are meant to strike awe and fear into the hearts of man, not remind them to pick up some brisket on the way home. Lest you think Im overreacting, heres a side-by-side comparison of the Nigersaurus and some other, more deserving animals granted the title Dinosaur.
