CanadaAfter years spent hunting for the buried remains of prehistoric animals, a Canadian paleontologist now plans to manipulate chicken embryos to show he can create a dinosaur.

Hans Larsson, the Canada Research Chair in Macro Evolution at Montreal’s McGill University, said he aims to develop dinosaur traits that disappeared millions of years ago in birds.

Larsson believes by flipping certain genetic levers during a chicken embryo’s development, he can reproduce the dinosaur anatomy, he told AFP in an interview.

Listen, I loved Jurassic Park just as much as the next guy, but watching Murphy’s Law unfold on the big screen was good enough for me. I don’t want to worry about some Canadian paleontologist cooking up dinosaurs in his lab. Everyone knows that Canada resents the U.S. for being so much better. They are sick of living in our shadow and have been looking for the means to hurt us for years. Building an army of dinosaurs might just get them over the hump. I imagine the war would go down like this…

I could probably make bank on Ebay selling my vintage Dino-Rider toys. Kids today have weak imaginations, it’s time we give them some dinosaurs with lasers beams.
