You are a giant super-intelligent cephalopod from 200 million years ago, apex predator of the Jurassic ocean. Is that correct?
That is my job description. Though I have to say that there is not a lot of meat on an apex, and when the chance comes up I prefer to predate a Shonisaurus popularis.
As any fule kno, the Shonisaurus whereof you speak was a large species of ichthyosaur, ranging in size up to about 14 metres. And then you would arrange the vertebral disks of your victims on the sea-bed, graded in size from large to little, in a kind of art-work, or perhaps a new garden path. Correct?
Right: Giant letter U from the Dortmund Union Brauerei building included for scale.
That is indeed McMenamin's theory -- to explain why a couple of Shonisaur skeletons have been excavated, fossilised in that particular arrangement.
Sorry.Since the pentasymmetric Great Old Ones in their Antarctic stronghold are known to use exactly that artistic style, perhaps your accusations would be less wild if they were directed at them.
I said I'm sorry.
UPDATE: Example of credulous Murdoch Press coverage here. Non-credulous Pharyngula coverage here.
Will the skepticism discourage the Riddled staff from publishing "Why Squid Sculpt" in time for $mas? Yeah right.
Must credit helpful pixie ITTDGY for first trying to call the easily-distracted Riddled attention to the Berlin Death Assembly, two years ago.
