Hi, I'm Rex, I'm a dinosaur and this is my blog.


Friday the 13th. Boo!

Friday the 13th!  Friday the 13th is supposed to be some sort of spooky bad news kind of day for humans, but for us dinosaurs it’s much different.  This is the day I like to play practical jokes on the students here at AIP.  Art students, I tell you what, they scare easily.

When I was a wee lad growing up in Montana, me and my best friends would play some seriously brilliant practical jokes on the cave-dwellers.

Me, Art, Fred, Don, and Sally would wait until the cave family fell asleep.  This ususally involved us waiting until the kids finished coloring on the walls and Mom and Dad tucked them into their corners to sleep.  After Dad was done dragging mom around by the hair, we would hear them snoring loudly.  This was our cue.  The five of us, all 20 tons of us, would creep to the mouth of the cave and start jumping up and down, shaking so violently the very earth the cave family slept on that they were convinced the angry gods were rending the earth in two.

The whole family would run screaming out of the cave and we’d be pointing and laughing,“Ha-ha-ha! It’s just us! Rawr!” and they’d be mad and waving sticks at us shouting, “A googla pleegla ba ba boo! Sritchy meetcha fee fee!”

I have no idea what that means.  I don’t speak Stupid B.C.

  2. Good morning, Happy Fool’s Day!

    John was driving when a policeman pulled him over. He rolled down his window and said to the officer, “Is there a problem, Officer?”
    “No problem at all. I just observed your safe driving and am pleased to award you a $5,000 Safe Driver Award. Congratulations. What do you think you’re going to do with the money?”
    John thought for a minute and said, “Well, I guess I’ll go get that driver’s license.”

    Happy April Fool’s Day!
