Digging on the Net: I am a Paleontologist

Was looking on YouTube for anything interesting to watch when I happened to come across a famous song from the band "They Might Be Giants." I haven't heard from this band in years, but I heard this song being played on a shoe commercial recently (forgive me, I can't remember the brand and I'm too lazy to look it up). Here it is:

I'd rather not list the anatomical problems with the fossil animals in the video, as the list would lengthen the post to a ridiculous length..... Just a few problems include the Velociraptor's disfigured face and lack of a sickle claw, the Wooly Mammoth has bones in its trunk, Stegosaurus has peg-like, not rounded teeth, and that there is no dinosaur named Carnotaur. Either way, it's a fun video and it's not supposed to be taken seriously.

Anyway, I find it to be rather catchy, and I thought it would be something fun to share with any younger readers and maybe some older ones too that are interested in this kind of stuff. I will probably be humming this for the next few days while I type my next post, it's gotten into my brain. By the way, I've decided, my next post will probably be about Sauropod skulls and maybe feeding habits of some other herbivorous dinosaur.
