What the Dinosaur (IV)

1 Conversation


In Sandown, Isle of Wight mad scientist Dr Beeching whose name sounds familiar has played with forces beyond his comprehension and unwittingly restored to life a Neovenator, a dinosaur from the Cretaceous. Having crossed the road safely using the Green Cross Code it has popped to the beach café - more a glorified nammet hut to be honest that predominantly sells buckets and spades, windbreaks and beach inflatables, but also serves tea and cakes to a few outdoor tables and chairs - for a cuppa and a scone with a new-found friend.Episode IV of a 20-part adventureAs foxes are not native to the Isle of Wight but were first introduced in 1845, can they ethically be eaten by a dinosaur, provided of course that it does not first hunt them? Is Bluebottle's wife right when she says that every time he attempts to draw a woman she always ends up looking like a man in drag? Is it better to get rid of a useless and patronising portion of the population by feeding them to dinosaurs, or by telling them they'll be eaten by a mutant star goat unless they get on a B-Ark? The chances are remote that you'll learn any answers in next week's instalment of What the Dinosaur.

If YOU have Been Affected By Issues Raised in this Episode:

If You or someone you know has joined a red-trousered extremist group such as the Royal Yacht Squadron or Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, please be assured that it is possible to re-join the community and become a productive member of society. Theoretically. Obviously it has never actually happened so far, but it is at least conceivable.
