My friends and I have an unhealthy obsession with T-Rex. It all started when one of the guys said, completely randomly, that dinosaurs became extinct because Rex had a tummy-itch and couldn’t reach to scratch it. (You had to be there.) There are so many funny T-rex pictures, and since then I’ve found Hugh Murphy’s awesome Tumblr, T-Rex Trying. It’s hilarious and sad and you should check it out.
My sister, a second-year Occupational Therapy student, concluded that Rex needs OT and assistive devices:
THEN my favourite rheumatology professor asked us who had the oldest known case of gout. I guessed some random pharaoh.
You guessed it.
T-Rex is the oldest known case in the world with gout, with evidence of gouty erosions found in T-rex skeletons in 1997. I quite like rheumatology so I definitely want to give Rex a hug (and some colchicine!) now. Rex’s meat-heavy diet was probably the culprit. Not a wonder the poor creature was such a grump!
This is hilarious 😉 T-rex is awesome
I think it might just be my favourite wild animal 😛
Made me laugh!
Good, so I didn’t laugh alone! 😛
Never thought of T-Rex before! But now I have a reason to. Haha! Good read! Lol.
Glad you had fun, heh. 😀
Hahahaha amazing. He really could use some OT.
Much needed laugh for a study break!! The CPR struggle though!!
Well, I aim to please 😀
Haha. This is very funny…. They should do a cartoon of T Rex trying to do surgery!
Ooooh. Humour AND gore. I like it!
