Re: How to Keep Dinosaurs

Five little dinosaurs in their cage behind me. I thought that's what the book is about!

As for intelligence, many parrots can carry on intelligent conversations in English, and solve picture puzzles.

My dinosaurs regularly make comments (sic) about dem 'tupid 'dynabtids. 'Dyanabtids are ugly, broad, and squat, they smell, and their brains are full of empty space!

Subject: How to Keep Dinosaurs

I came across this book being remaindered: How To Keep Dinosaurs by
Robert Mash (with foreward by Richard Dawkins). It's a funny book about
keeping dinos as pets. My favorite photo is of Deinonychus playing poker
with the caption: Deinonychus will only play Poker for high steaks ( note
spelling). Has anyone else seen this book and if so, what do you think of
