Kids love dinosaurs.

with 2 comments

I loved dinosaurs when I was a kid, and I mean, who didn’t?

It was fascinating to me that the Brontosaurus was so big that it had two brains. One in the head and another was located in the butt. This was because it would take too long to send nerve signals to the hind part of its body from the head.

When I was 6 or 7 though I called that secondary butt-brain the “brainus” and thought it was really funny but I never told anyone about it because I felt like adults would judge me for that since it seemed kind of inappropriate somehow.

I also thought that you spelled dandelion “dandy-lion” when I was young but at the time I had no idea that a dandy was sort of like an 19th century metrosexual guy. I just thought it meant “swell” or “hey neato!”… now this dandy-lion seems way funnier to me.

  1. I was so into dinosaurs when I was a kid, that I made my mom buy me the complete dinosaur bedding, complete with dino comforter, pillow case, etc. Even had rubber dino placemats. The downside was that all the dinos where just colored silhouettes, not true to life. Thankfully I learned quickly that there are no purple stegosauri.
