Hey guys, I was wondering if you would like to help my group and I brainstorm ways in which the dinosaurs could've gone extinct. We need seriously bogus and rediculous ideas like the aliens and the dinosaurs had a war and some emo dinos decided to kill themselves. We're coming up with something in similar taste to How to Kill a Mockingbird, for those of you who've seen it. Any ideas? We've got more ideas than the ones I mentioned, but we're still brainstorming. Wanna help?

The dinosaurs never existed. The fossil record is just the remains of props used by alien film studios for summer blockbuster movies shot using earth as a location.

Dinos developed time travel and found out they were coolest thing ever... so they had nothing to live for and died.

They all choked on flinstones vitamins... Then died from irony poisoning.

They started reading Jack Chick tracts, realized they were part of Satan's conspiracy to promote evolution, and committed mass suicide.

So far what we have is the following:
It will start with something like an official palantologist report. However we will abruptly, and in a funny way, dissmiss all the scientists as ignorant hicks and start telling what REALLY happened. First of all, we will start with the big bang and then the dinos are all of a sudden going to be there. We will narrate the story of how in the prophecies it was written that on the coming year, the apocalypse was going to occur. One day, the aliens attack (the aliens will be numerous pictures of my Chadwick and the leader will have an Elvis head). They have killer atomic pincers and decide that they want to attack earth-because hey, that's what they do. So we have the scared dinosaurs running around and some of them panic, like the emo dinosaurs who kill themselves (because its fun and easy to laugh at emo kids). We will also play around the fact that in real life, 2500 left handed people die every year of using right handed products. Some other dinosaurs were stupid and had drunk driving and other random stuff where all the dinosaurs kill themselves and apocalypse does occur.


That's more or less what we have so far. We need to work more on this, and the group has disbanded for the night because we needed a break and some sleep.
Thanks for your two cents. [Smile]

Why? I would not list kids committing suicide near the top of my list of things that are fun and easy to laugh at. Seems a tad cruel...

It's not neccesarily cruel. Even most of the emo kids I know would see this and think it was humorous, which it is. It seems mean, but it needs to be taken in perspective. Certainly some emo people would take offense, but I think most would at least smile.


The best line I ever heard from an emo:

"I wish my grass was emo...........then it would cut itself"

It's fun and easy to laugh at emo kids because, although nearly everyone get made fun of at some point during their lives, only some decide to make a fashion statement out of it.

On the original subject, how about accidentally killing themselves and each other with lawn jarts?

It all started when the smart dinosaur genes started showing up in the same place as the redneck dinosaur genes.

The fateful event at the bioengineering lab was the worst recorded accident due to someone doing something stupid after saying "Hey guys, watch this!"

Gary Larson had a Far Side cartoon showing the real reason dinosaurs went extinct. Shows a group of them slouching around, smoking.


You could have them playing video games so much that they forget about sex...

Or, they could go on the internet, read a wikipedia article about how they are extinct and they get so depressed they just give up.

Or, the aliens come, not to conquer, but to "collect the whole set!" Until now, dinosaurs are only available on e-bay at vastly inflated prices. Oh sure, every once in awhile one will show up on WOOT! but those are typically factory reconditioned and don't have all the cool features.

They could be crushed having dino sex. Don't think that's quite appropriate, though.

Oh, the connection between them is the type of animation and humor we're going for. I must restate that you guys aren't actually doing our homework, just give us some brainfood that will eventually evolve into our own ideas. In short, I came to Hatrack in search of inspiration.

Are you sure you're not thinking of the book To Kill a Mockingbird?

"How to Kill a Mockingbird" is very... very different. It's this.

Perhaps they argued whether Chuck Norris or a Space Ship full of Invisible Ninjas would win a fight, so they started building a space ship, hoping to attract Invisible Ninjas to crew it, when Chuck Norris came back in time to destroy them all.

He did this by roundhouse kicking an asteroid into earth.

That Far Side cartoon is what pops into my head every time I see this thread title. Here's the picture, though it doesn't have the caption.

Captain Planet obliterated them...back when his real goal was to rule the earth. He was still on the sauce in those days.

Then the aliens sent him to rehab and anger management, and he turned into fuzzy tree hugger man.
