The Dr Evil of Dinosaurs.

On James Gurney's blog, he recently included an odd quote, apparrently from the National Geographic website, that 'If dinosaur evolution were an Austin Powers movie, T. rex would be Dr Evil'. http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/2010/01/devil-dinosaurs.html

For a start this statement fails (as Gurney pointed out) because the T. Rex was only an animal striving to survive, like any other. Secondly, it seems to me, a T. Rex lacked long-enough arms and sufficient digits to do the Dr Evil trademark hand gesture. Actually it seems that what they've found is a tiny T. Rex, not the Dr Evil but the Mini-Me of dinosaurs, if anything....
