* Original concept by Lucas Stone (age 7), who, upon hearing his father bullshit his way through an explanation about how animals can be cloned proceeded to ask, later in the day,  “What if humans cloned dinosaurs, then the humans went extinct, and then the dinosaurs cloned humans… then the dinosaurs went extinct and so the humans cloned the dinosaurs… and on and on, forever?”

* Shitty artwork by Jesse Stone (age 41)

* Caption written in cooperation with Josh Bard (mid-thirties-ish, I believe)

* Special thanks to my wife Rachel McLaren (timeless) for her invaluable comment on an earlier draft: “They kind of look like turtles without a shell… maybe add some spikes?
