Biology humor

My buddy John Wilkins informs us that some biologists have recently bestowed some pretty interesting names. If you want to know what Aussiedraco, Pantydraco, and Pinkfloydia are, visit Evolving Thoughts.

    kubla, i appreciate the playfulness, the move toward a joyous science of dinosaurs and spiders, but you have to know a LOT of latin to grasp any of the humor.

    & since I know precious little Latin, I take the humor on faith. But I recognize “Pink Floyd” and “Aussie.” Maybe I could run through the Road Runner cartoons and catalog all the pseudo-Latin names given to the road runner and the coyote.

    Hmmm…..I wonder if the Acme Co., which made all those gadgets that failed on the coyote, I wonder if it got into the nuclear power business. No doubt it did a bang-up job if it did.
