That's one dumb narrator if he/she can't say starling correctly!
Albertonykus's avatar
It's a parody of the fact that the narrator on Clash of the Dinosaurs kept mispronouncing Parasaurolophus. Granted, that's a much harder word, but you'd think someone would have brought it up...

When the narrator mispronounced Parasaurolophus, I just threw up. IT'S MY FAVORITE DINOSAUR!!!

Humorously, their equivalent to the Quetzalcoatlus one could be filled by a kestrel and it would probably be pretty accurate XD

The classic "shoehorn a prehistoric animal into a modern animal role".
CJCroen's avatar
Yeah. I primarily guessed that because they portrayed Quetz as hunting like a kestrel (hunts while flying high, eats smaller animals, can see UV light, etc.), despite the fact that Quetz would be more like a stork.

Question time: does Obscurity Channel have Carcharodontosaurian Week? ;)
Albertonykus's avatar
Probably, or perhaps Plesiosaur Week sensu :icontyrannotitan333:!

Great news! It appears that Dangerous, Ltd.'s website is down (likely for good)!

Interesting to say the least.

"Stalin used sonic boom" just made my day.
In reference to the 4th panel, you forgot to say "It's super effective!" Otherwise, good parody.
Albertonykus's avatar
Thanks! I thought of adding that, but Sonic Boom takes away a fixed 20 HP, so effectiveness doesn't factor into it as far as I know.
I was also wondering why you picked M.olecranus to fill M.Wedel's role? Was it b/c said dino is an alvarezsaurid w/a 1st name that starts w/"M"?
Albertonykus's avatar
Good question! It may have been because it was the first dinosaur I could think of (probably because it was an alvarezsaurid) with a name that was easy to misspell, as it includes a spelling variant of a commonly used (Greek) word (in dinosaur names).

Bothered to watch this earlier%u2026 and it is indeed as horrible as everyone makes it out to be. I didn't even watch whole episodes! There was also that scene where the two Deinonychus kill that 20 ft high Sauroposeidon (though Paleogene Fight Club does seem to have a similar point)%u2026

And it's hilarious of course!

It was that that made me draw this, actually. X3

Thanks! The Deinonychus killing the subadult Sauroposeidon was certainly another big flaw that everyone talked about; I didn't include it because I was going to use the same idea for "Paleogene Fight Club" and because it wasn't as serious as the other misdemeanors of this show (such as quote mining).
That reminds me: 1 way CotD would've been better is if Saurornitholestes & Alamosaurus were used in place of Deinonychus & Sauroposeidon, respectively; That way, all the featured dinos would've been contemporaries, which would've allowed for more interactions btwn said dinos (& thus less reliance on stock footage); Also, instead of a Deinonychus pair attacking Sauroposeidon subadults, there would've been a Saurornitholestes pair picking off Alamosaurus hatchlings (a more realistic scene IMO).

Your welcome!

Yeah, you have to feel sorry for that poor palaeontologist.
