Talking The mighty T. Rex dinosaur a... Chicken?

Check out:

Apparently the closest thing to that huge dinosaur today is a chicken. Funny how evolutions works!

By that same logic the closest thing to primordial ooze today is all life on Earth. Just go further back...
But yes I already knew birds link an evolutionary line directly with dinosaurs. heard that since I saw Jurassic Park.

And why single out a chicken? Most birds can fly, so I'd rather be a bird than a dinosaur (other than a pterodactyl)

Yessir, I remember those days when I was a boy. Danged T. Rexs always gettin' into the corn fields and perchin' on the wires, tearin' down our phone lines. And you wouldn't believe the mess those things made on our car windshields!

Or maybe it's just budget time, again?

And near the end it could be interupted as;
The T-Rex ate a lot of things that contained chicken-type fat.

Maybe, maybe, maybe.

Maybe a chicken-type animal died next to the bone 10,000,000 years later.

Anyway, does anyone know if coffee is good or bad for you this month?

Maybe this is all a bunch of BS? Let me ask this, how is it they found viable dinosaur protein in the first place? Hmmm, more like 6,000 years old instead of millions? Hmmmm...Chicken huh? Science also tells us we share 96% of our DNA with the Chimpanzee family! However, milk chemistry tests show man's closest relative is a donkey, cholesterol level tests show it is the garter snake, tear enzyme chemistry tests show OUR closest relative is the chicken and blood chemistry tests prove our closest relative is the butter bean! But of course you heard it on the internet....

I really like Rex from Toy Story. But not in the eating sense.
