The herbiferous saurians went first, notably the bone-headed dinosaurs (pachysephalosaurs) whose large skull enclosed a very tiny brain, making them easily vulnerable to enticements by wily stone-age Nimrods and antedeluvian GOP operatives.
The feathered ones went next because they tasted like turducken, a gastronomic throwback of cretacious-era origin, recently resurrected by Paula Deen on her hit TV series, "Cooking for the Morbidly Obese", which was, regrettably, cancelled when researchers discovered that her audience was dying off (literally!) faster than it could be replaced with new viewers.
It should be noted here that the Paleo regimen is sometimes confused with the homonymic Palio Diet which is of medieval Siennese provenance and refers to the eighteen unlucky horses that lose the Il Palio races each year, and are then served up to the voracious inhabitants of Sienna as cavallo perdente rustico.

As its women’s biathlon relay team was winning the first Olympic gold medal for Ukraine in two decades, and while Kiev’s Independence Square was being reduced to a charred wasteland, Ukraine Olympic Committee honcho Sergey Bubka was pole-vaulting his country into 2022, furthering, at Sochi, it’s bid to bring the Winter Games to Lviv in Eastern Ukraine eight years from now.
Given that the bid was an initiative of the just-deposed Yanukovych government, one must necessarily wonder what the future actually holds for the stressed nation, and whether Lviv in 2022 is simply a bridge too far.
