Goat Friday

My favourite for this week’s award goes to researchers at Montana State University, for their discovery of burrowing dinosaurs.

They somehow seem to think this “burrowing behaviour” enabled some dinosaur species to survive the asteroid impact that wiped out most species at the end of the Cretaceous Period.

Whereas the prevailing wisdom holds that dinosaurs died off to make way for evolutionary innovations such as Bruce Willis, who as everyone knows saved the world from a similar impact and mass-extinction event, as documented in Armageddon.

Burrowing dinosaurs?

They would have been pretty big burrows, like, big enough to be a tad obvious. Wouldn't you think someone would have noticed if there were any whopping burrows about the place by now?

Ben Affleck? Evolution?

Perhaps I'm being just a tad flip with The Science. The suggestion is that the burrowers were the smaller 'avian' type dinosaurs - the ones that evoluted into our feathered friends of today.
