Another Gewgaw for Michael’s Pool April 24, 2012

To heck with spitting lions, it’s time to take up a collection!! I think this would look great crouching over Michael’s pool:

You can get your own Tyrannosaurus skeleton for at least $1,000,000

…head over to New York on May 20 for Heritage Auctions’ Natural History Signature event, where the 75% complete skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus bataar will take center stage.

Tyrannosaurus bataar is known for being the smaller cousin of the T-rex; the specimen to be auctioned measures 24-feet long and 8-feet high. While the T-rex roamed the lands of North America, what’s now known as Central Asia served as the playground of the Tyrannosaurus bataar, 80 million years ago during the Cretacious period. Auction officials expect the skeleton to sell for more than a million, citing as an example a Sotheby’s auction in 1997 wherein a T-rex skeleton sold for $8 million.

What? Only a little T-rex?

Never mind.

I suppose. If you’re the sort that traffics in gaucherie, that is.

Yes, they are officially known as the puking lions.

Wait, did you call me gauche?

The new Sanctuary map in MW3 has puking lions just like Michael’s.

Michael lives in a video game.
