Quote# 32412

Most anybody [sic] that studies T-Rex will tell you - even though he had ferocious head, ferocious teeth and was, you know, huge - his front arms are pretty tiny. And if you could ever get hold of one [of the arms] you probably could jerk it right off.

never been there

I bet those tiny arms evolved for a reason - you know, some other dinosaur thinks, "Hey, I probably could jerk one of those tiny arms right off." Dinosaur tries it, forgets about the ferocious head and teeth and CHOMP!, T-rex has its dinner.

'Cept for those 6" teeth and giant head.

Or his "front arms" looked tiny because he was "huge."

I think this can be classified as something similar to a knock-knock joke.

And what does this have to do with anything? T-rex doesn't need those arms to eat...

Actually, a tyrannosaur's arms are pretty strong. I think one estimate claimed they were capable of lifting 300 to 400 pounds. They just look small and useless because the rest of the animal is so damn big.

Whadda MOOK!

Would that they still existed so we could watch you try.

12/15/2007 3:49:29 PM


If we ever get a time machine, I dare you to try it.
Darn, was beaten to it. Maybe I should stop reading uncyclopedia and get back to insulting fundies.

Hovind should put double entendres in all his batshit crazy rantings; they seem to make it much more tolerable.

12/15/2007 3:55:48 PM


Yeah, so where's your intelligent designer now? The Tyrannosaurs didn't need their arms so they evolved into useless vestigial parts.

Mr Roarke : That's Mr Hovind. He's a fundamentalist christian preacher who has to make secret trips here so he can get his rocks off.
Tattoo : and what is his fantasy this trip, boss?
Mr Roake : This time, he's into jerking off T-Rex arms

Pull my finger Dr. Hovind.

12/15/2007 5:37:48 PM


Of course, getting close to that arm puts you right in range of the mouth.

12/15/2007 5:49:22 PM


Really stupid idea Kent. Scientists have estimated that each one of thise arms was capable of holding over 400lbs. It's nice to know that even a triceratops was smarter than Kent Hovind! I'll bet even a stegosauras with a walnut size brain for a four ton body was smarter than the idiots that follow that crook.

Given that a T. rex forearm is about the size of a human arm (and probably better muscled), Kent is apparently claiming we can rip each others arms off with not too much trouble.

If you're Chuck Norris maybe! Mind you, Chuck'd probably allow the T. rex to eat him, then kick it to death from the inside!

Thanks for clarifying [of the arms]. I for one am VERY VERY glad you did.

12/15/2007 8:48:54 PM


Oh I see. Prison is where YEC's go to contemplate jerking things off.

12/15/2007 11:09:07 PM

Who taught you science and English, doctor Dino?. Not the faculty in Harvard, that's sure.

I hope this guy is thinking of the Baby Jesus whilst he's out jerking off TRex's parts.
(ref. to another post) ;-)

Fantasize much about dinosaur dicks, Kent?

12/17/2007 3:42:24 AM


woot! I got a submission!

Also, that page is full of Hovind gold (or lead, I suppose)

Kent may have solved one of paleontology's puzzles - of what use are T-rex's front arms.

They're for jerking off.

....and those anacondas you hear about in the Amazon basin - they don't even have any arms, so how could they crush a man to death?

12/17/2007 8:41:37 AM


you probably could jerk it right off.
I'm sure he'd be very happy. Is this a fossil that comes in quarts?
