I Have a Bone To Pick...

I'll have one Dino-Chicken with garlic mashed
potatoes, please.

How is it served up--rolled up to my table on a dolly?

It seems that a dino-chicken may be scientifically
created one day. A recent paleo-archaeologist discovered
a bone sticking out from a massive cliff face--a femur of
very extinct dinosaur...60 million years old.
That's a lot of birthdays.

The find was so massive that an excavation crew was
to the site. The femur was broken into small
workable sections for

Once back to the lab, the specimens were placed under
microscopes. What was discovered
was active DNA :
thread-like, stringy blood vessels--and a gooey substance

from the femur's center--marrow.
How could that be?

So, I'm wondering, what will the scientists do with
this discovery?
It's a scary thought to think that some
"mad" laboratory scientist
could mix up a batch of hybrid dinosaurs.
Shades of a future Jurassic Park...?
Should Disney worry?

Will there be a super-chicken packaged in the poultry case?

Can I look forward to a super-sized roasting chicken,
instead of the paltry selection of scrawny rotisserie chickens
flashing their golden bony legs and flat chests?

One can only dream...
