I side with the bearded one on this... scrap Apatosaurus and go with
Brontosaurus. I believe common usage should overide debatable taxonomy

Catch a white star and you place it in your forehead, say a few spells and,

Take a black cat and sit it on your shoulder, and in the morning you'll know
all that you know.
