Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for June 21, 1992
Calvin: I've been reading about the beginning of the universe. They call it "The Big Bang." Isn't it weird how scientists can imagine all the matter of the universe exploding out of a dot smaller than the head of a pin, but they can't come up with a more evocative name for it than "The Big Bang"? That's the whole problem with science. You've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder. Hobbes: What would you call the creation of the universe? Calvin: "The HOrrendous Space Kablooie!" Hobbes: Hmmm...that is better. Calvin: Almost anything would be. Hobbes: We should lobby to change that. Calvin: And I think "Tyrannosaur" should be changed to "Monstrous Killer Death Lizard."
Calvin, Tyrannosaurus Rex literally means “Tyrrant lizard king.” I dunno, that IS pretty awesome name.
