I thought (but now, must say I thinked)
Tyrannosaurs were all extinct—
But now, a T-rex has been found
Alive! Not fossils in the ground!
The stories in the paper tell
This specimen’s alive and well,
And (if you can believe the News)
It’s even giving interviews!
It’s not so strange, if truth be told….
But just a name… that’s good as Gold.
Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold, that is. Via NPR, it seems the former Tyler Gold legally changed his name, because his new one is, according to official court documents, “cooler”.
Well, duh. Why didn’t I think of this when naming the Cuttlekids?
Oh, and because I know you know, and you know I know you know, unless both NPR and the local paper are wrong, he capitalizes “Rex”, so my title isn’t technically wrong.
