As this is the last day of me being in the UK before I jet off to Mauritius (via Dubai) tomorrow, here’s a GIF of a dodo, our national bird. The dodo looks like it couldn’t get around fast enough, which might have led to its extinction at the hands of hungry Portuguese sailors and colonists.
Me and a friend are planning to go to the Barking Showcase cinema for the opening show of the aquatic horror The Meg when it is released next month. Basically you have a massive prehistoric shark, the Megalodon, that likes to chomp submarines. It’s Jaws on steroids!
Circa late Jurassic era – Gifvilleasaurus shahii – lived in primordial fern forests in what is now Gifville. It fed upon horse chestnuts and wild coriander (didn’t do ferns, really) and with its lean and muscular hind legs, this bipedal dinosaur as capable of hunting down unusual and elusive proto-GIFs. It also liked to play the sitar. A mortal enemy of the fat purple dinosaur, Barney.
