Break-up of the Animals

I just saw this in The Onion. When I lived in Wisconsin some years ago, we considered The Onion to be the state’s finest newspaper. Since then, they got into the digital age and I suppose they dropped the pulp and ink. But their website kept their gift of satire. And fun.

Here is a link to Onion’s latest science tom-foolery, a story about a Penn State research scientist who discovered Earth’s Animals One Giant Creature Before Breaking Apart Millions Of Years Ago. I linked their picture of what the planet looked like during the Mesozoic, just before the animals broke apart – you’ll have to go to their site to get the whole story.
