Mammal Superiority Complex

| Charlottetown, PEI, Canada | Cousins

(While visiting my cousin’s house, this conversation comes up.)

Me: “Did you hear they recently found a dinosaur tail embedded in amber?”

Cousin: “Dinosaurs didn’t exist.”

(I just stare at her for a few seconds.)

Me: “Then, what do you think all those fossils are?”

Cousin: “Mammals.”

Me: “The only mammals at the time were small rat-like creatures.”

Cousin: “Maybe it was rats.”

Me: “What kind of rats have feathers?”

Cousin: “Maybe it was birds.”

Me: “While dinosaurs are very similar to birds they are very lizard like.”

Cousin: “Maybe it was giant lizards.”

(I left shortly after that.)
