Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 09, 1992
Calvin as a dinosaur: Eighty million years ago, back in the late cretaceous, lived the great Tyrannosaur, a fearsome and predacious therapod of monstrous size! He weighed six tons or more! He epitomized the concept of the killer carnivore! His jaws had teeth like railroad spikes with fore and aft serrations! This dental hardware was designed for quick eviscerations! With thrashing bites and awful roars the T. Rex would attack! He was, it's clear, a savage Mesozoic maniac! Imagine, then, the panic, caused the horror and the mayhem when this monster came to town and ate some folks this a.m! It was a sight few will forget! He lunged into the crowd! The mulitude became unglued! Their screams were long and loud! People pushed to get away! The elderly and small were trampled underfoot by the advancing human will! Little Tim was on an errand with his brother, Howard. They dawdled by the candy shop and both boys were devoured. A camera crew from channel three arrived in town to give a live report. At this they failed, because they didn't live. At last the menace ate his fill. The big Tyrannosaur stomped away to parts unknown where he had lived before. Tyrannosaurs, though rarely seen, are certainly still around. And no one knows just where or when the next one will be found. Mom: Blow your nose, son.
