A QUITE frankly unimaginative boy has loudly declared that his favourite dinosaur is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
8-year-old Wayne Hayes highlighted the rather obvious giant carnivore in his World of Dinosaurs book, to the disappointment of friends and relatives.
Father Brian Hayes said: “I mean, come on. Everyone likes the T Rexes. It’s like saying your favourite colour is blue.
“It just goes to show that he hasn’t genuinely engaged with the field of palaeontology. He’s a feckless dilettante, flicking carelessly through his dinosaur books until he finds the one with the biggest teeth and most menacing eyes.
Other 8-year-old Tom Booker said: “Who’s even into T Rexes these days? They’re rather passe, don’t you think?
“Actually my favourite dinosaur is the Apatosaurus. You’ve probably never even heard of it.”
However Wayne Hayes said: “T Rex goes rar! And bites all the other dinosaurs!”
He added: “You love what you love. I don’t care. The Diplodocus people can fuck off.”
