“Thank you for calling the Dinosaur Hotline, where catastrophic extinction comes to life. This is Brandine, your Dinoperator. How may I help you?”

“Hi, uh, I was just wondering… Who would win in a fight between a stegosaurus and a triceratops?”

“Sir, do you have a serious question for me or not?”

“What? I just wanted to know who would win in a fight—”

“Excuse me, sir. I am a certified Dinoperator. I’m only a semester away from completing my Dinocology degree at DU. I take this job very seriously. If you’re not going to ask a real question, I’m—”

“But I don’t understand! That is a real question!”

“Did you know that I’m a single mother? My love for dinosaurs destroyed my marriage. The long hours at the library, the weeks away from home at a new dig site… I gave up my life for dinosaurs, so when some kid tries to prank call me at work, I get more than a little pissed off. If you want to—”

“It isn’t a prank call, I swear! I’m so sorry about your marriage, but I just really want to know about stegosauruses and triceratopses.”

*sigh* Everyone knows that stegosaurae lived in the Jurassic period, while triceratopedes lived in the late Cretaceous. Eighty five million years apart. Chronologically speaking, a triceratops lived closer in time to you and me than it did to a stegosaur.”

“Oh… I guess I didn’t know that. Well, thanks, that answers my question.”

“Alright, sir. Thank you for calling the Dinosaur Hotline today. Visit our website to enter for a chance to win free tickets to Jurassic Park 4: The Legend of Hammond’s Gold. Goodbye.”
