Our top scientists, so preoccupied with whether or not they could mix dinosaur and human DNA, never stopped to ask if they should. But now their ancient chickens have come home to roost in the form of one man entertaining his co-workers by giving vent to his terrible human/lizard curse. Hold onto your butts.
While billed as an impressive imitation of Jurassic Park’s T. rex and velociraptors, it’s readily apparent that Jack Lewis, the man in question, is suffering a resurgence of his prehistoric genetic coding. Watch with great sensitivity as this poor soul stomps into a break room to roar with crooked little arms held next to his chest. Know that your laughter is directed at a wretched Frankenstein’s monster whose very existence mocks natural law when he becomes a raptor, jumping up onto (and nearly breaking) a table.
“God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs, God creates man, man destroys God, man creates dinosaurs,” Ian Malcolm says near the beginning of Steven Spielberg’s classic. If only he could look upon the next step and wonder anew at the hubris of our science. When they look like humans but act like themselves, dinosaurs truly have returned to rule the world.
