What’s more exciting than getting to see a giant animatronic dinosaur?

Getting to see a giant animatronic FLAMING dinosaur.

He appears to have burst into flames from the general crotch area. See, that’s what happens when you feel a burning sensation in your crotch and don’t get it checked out right away!


#4

Just because Godzilla can breathe fire doesn’t mean that any other giant lizard can do it without setting himself on fire.


#5

Obviously it looks like it started from the fire in it’s loins!


#6

Is it part of a promo for another Michael Bay movie?

I was expecting to see a bunch of half naked hipsters and tech bros dancing around it…

That and an inability to scratch.


#12

Maybe that was the really sad true story behind the T-Rex scene in Fantasia.

“Someone please scratch my back!”

“Although the 24-foot-tall T-Rex is a big loss to the park, Reynold’s had a sense of humor about it”

Can you spell insurance? I knew ya could.

There’s no sign that they’re Creationists, so probably a sense of humor too.
