"God created dinosaurs. God destroyed dinosaurs. God created Man. Man destroyed God." Man puts dinosaur in road.
In the early hours of Saturday morning in the village of Godshill on
the Isle of Wight in the U.K., drivers were surprised to find a
7.6-meter-long (25 foot-long) model Triceratops placed in the middle of
Not surprisingly, it’s thought to be the result of drunken mischief.
The prank came to light after Chris Hollingshead posted an image of the dinosaur on Facebook, saying: “That priceless moment when you're driving home from work at 3am and the road is blocked by a 20ft Triceratops!!!”
The dinosaur model comes from Island Gems, a fossil shop, where it is affectionately known as Godshilla.
Martin Simpson, the owner of Island Gems, told the BBC:
"It takes about five blokes to move the dinosaur a couple of inches, so
it was definitely a concerted effort and drink was probably involved."
Mr. Simpson noted that Godshilla will now be tied down to prevent any future escapes.

Sure, you'd be hard-pressed to improve upon our canine companions'
lovely au naturel appearance. But there are some occasions, especially
for owners of those more shed-prone dogs, when letting a pup's furry
flag fly unfettered really isn't so convenient.
Fortunately, someone came up with an idea to prevent shedding in a pinch: dog-sized leotards.
These rather adorable form-fitting outfits, made of lightweight, breathable material, are the brainchild of Tyson Walters, founder of the company Shed Defender. As the owner of a very furry Saint Bernard, named Harley, Walters dreamt up the garment as a fix to a very common problem he had taking car rides with his dog.
car was practically ruined. Harley's hair would intertwine in the
fabric and not want to ever come out," Walters told The Dodo. "She would
shake and the hair would just explode off her and disperse all
throughout the car. I looked around on the internet and dog stores, but I
couldn't find a solution. So I decided to make one."
With that, the dog leotard was born.
addition to making your pup look like a little shed-free superhero,
Shed Defender leotards are also a convenient solution for when someone
with dog allergies drops by, as the garment reduces the spread of hair and dander to a minimum.
It doesn't prevent shedding, of course. It just keeps it in check when needed. You'll still have to brush.
are several other handy applications as well. When worn outside, it
keeps a dog's coat clean and, on a cold day, will even help them stay
If a dog has stitches, or some other skin annoyance, Shed Defender could even work as a replacement to the dreaded cone of shame.
Anxious pups could benefit from the garment as well. Wrapping dogs in snug fabric is said to ease nervousness during times of stress.
Shed Defender is quick to note that the product is intended to be worn for brief periods at a time, not always
— and that dogs should be properly brushed after using it, as is
recommended to maintain a healthy coat. The fabric allows enough airflow
that overheating isn't a problem (but it's always a good idea to keep a
dog indoors on especially hot days, anyway).
Oh, and you'll need to unzip the relevant end when it comes time for a dressed-up dog to do his or her business outside.
"It is actually pretty easy to put on and very easy to take off," said Walters.
Dodo hasn't tested this product, but Shed Defender says that
veterinarians have given it a stamp of approval. Still, the company
admits not all pups are totally into it at first, writing online:
dog reacts differently to the Shed Defender, sometimes it can take
awhile for dogs to get comfortable in any type of garment, including the
Shed Defender. They might walk a little funny or pick up their hind
legs when they walk, but just give it time and they will soon forget
they are even wearing it."
it's always possible that some dogs might reject the idea of wearing a
leotard outright, Shed Defenders hopes it will have added benefits to
dogs in general either way. A portion of the proceeds of every garment
is donated to local animal shelters to help homeless pets.
Did we forget to mention that dogs in leotards are actually quite cute?
love the idea. They love the look. It is a head turner," Walters said.
"People always take pics of Harley when she's wearing her, and they ask
where they can get one. Hot pink is one of our hottest selling colors.

Oh thank you Sean! I didn't see you had replied. I tried highlighting the article once before and it didn't paste right. I'll have to try it again. A bare link is just so ugly and an un-enticing.
