Paleontologists Recreate "Weirdest Dinosaur Ever Seen"

October 28, 2014


Meet Deinocheirus mirificus (literally: unusual, horrible hand), a recently described dinosaur that some paleontologists are calling the weirdest ever seen. It does kinda look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. For the record, I'd still hit it. Actually, expunge that from the record (I still would, I just don't want the t-rexes knowing about it and blowing my chances with them). It does look like it has the arms for some pretty solid handjobs though.

Its beak is monstrous. It has rather ugly, hoofy feet. Then there's the enormous hump on its back that looks like something it swallowed is desperate to get out.

Yong-Nam Lee, the lead researcher on this quest to piece together a lost creature, was accurate in telling the BBC: "It turned out to be one of the weirdest dinosaurs. It's weird beyond our imagination."

The almost complete skeletons -- two of them -- were discovered in Mongolia. Once pieced together with the 8-foot arms, they comprised a whole that is 36 feet long and infinitely bizarre.

It's weird to think about when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Like, they did all the same things animals do today. Like sleeping. You ever thought about a t-rex taking a nap? That's weird to think about. Plus what your lover thinks about how your butthole looks. I bent over and looked at my own in the mirror once, I regret it. I couldn't be with me, I know that.

Keep going for an 10-second animation of how they believe Deinocheirus walked.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who agrees it's only a matter of time before paleontologists discover another, weirder looking dinosaur that I'm going to have to pretend all day at work I'm not gonna race home and masturbate to.
