On Google campus, a dinosaur is forever in battle with hordes of flamingos

Can confirm, those flamingoes were there when I was at the Googleplex a year ago. They seem to have multiplied, though. Asexual budding, maybe?


#3

Is it not a dreadful breach of filial piety for birds to be skeletonizing a dinosaur like that?

Those damn whippersnappers should be treating Mr. Rex as an honored elder and ancestor!


#4

If we could get enough beta-Carotene into a T-Rex (perhaps by feeding it flamingos), would it turn pink also?


#5

A flurry of flamingoes?


#6

I want whatever that designer smoked.


#7

Every time they find a new way to monetise our data they add another flamingo.

(Or… every time somebody actually uses Google Plus…)


#8

Yeah. They were there two weeks ago. It was looking a bit darker for the T Rex then.


#9

At first I thought that somebody had put “truck nutz” on it…


#10

sorry to be a grammar pedant/nudnik, but “beset upon by” s/b either “set upon by” or “beset by” - nice image though


#11

Somehow this just begs the question: Would you rather fight one dinosaur sized flamingo, or 100 flamingo sized dinosaurs?


#12

What makes this worse is that the flamingos are basically cannibals.


#13

That depends on the available weaponry.

That said, a bit of bait, a bit of poison, and a bit of advance planning could solve it peacefully, without fighting.


#14

I’d assume they’re about as related as we are to cattle. Probably less. Do all dinosaurs and their descendants look alike to you!? You birdist. :bird:


#15

BTW there is a lump of concrete on the ground under Stan’s tail. With bits of pink flamingo in.
