This cartoon is just humorous in its apocalyptic, sadly true kind of way. From yesterday’s story in The Economist about the death of the American newspaper, a topic no one in the history of time has ever written about, especially not in the past six months or with any sense whatsoever of increasingly macabre morbid fascination. This whole cartoon, of course, is completely historically inaccurate, as we learned from Ben Stein. Not only were dinosaurs not evolved enough to make the complex fashion choices required to pop a collar as depicted above, they also would never have read the liberal rags the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune. Everyone knows dinosaurs prefer to get their information from cable news, which would explain why they dismissed all the hype and warnings about the incoming meteor as environmental scare tactics.
