When Hedgehogs Ruled the Earth

Of all the creatures of the early Paleoriffic era, the most fearsome was the giant Hedgisaurus Rex (quillis pricklyus). Towering over his contemporary descendants, this lumbering giantΒ was protected by its natural spiky defenses, while devouring spike-less creatures, who were completely pointless.

    Honestly, I don’t know how you do it. I can be witty about once or twice a year. You do it multiple times a day. It’s a talent, that’s for sure, that you’ve got an extra helping of!

    I’m sitting on a conference call bored out of my mind. Lucky my phone is on mute. πŸ˜€

    Also, on a side note, NTMTOM.com is not blocked at work. Yay!

    No disrespect to CO because I love the site, but It’s great to have somewhere to go for all NTMTOM all the time.

    • Puddleglum November 16, 2015 / 7:18 pm

      Right?! I used to go to CO and filter the posts to read everything posted by NTMTOM. Hours of entertainment. πŸ˜€ (And also by Theo…his stuff was great. Whatever happened to him I wonder?)

      Did I use this picture before? I can’t remember, but I have a vague feeling that it’s familiar…

      • Linda November 16, 2015 / 5:45 pm

        I don’t think so, I just meant your text is in your particular fabulous vernacular!

    OMG! The prickles!!! My mother used to have an adorable hedgie that I gave her for Christmas and I have loved them for years.

    I concur…NTMTOM all the time is pretty much the best!

    • Smartypants November 16, 2015 / 6:17 pm

      Yes – the scrolldown and then…the punch line! And the hover! Makes my day much brighter.

    Hedgisauris is all ‘Wait, it looks like he was made in Taiwan, sheesh that continental drift was fast.’

  12. Faye November 16, 2015 / 7:48 pm

    No one expects the Giant Hedgisaurus Rex. I’m downstairs alone laughing like a loon. Thank you so much.
    And all Mike all the time, priceless.

    This site is just getting better and better.

  14. Kristin November 16, 2015 / 9:35 pm

    Too funny! I was already laughing and then I got to totally pointless. Plus, this is an adorable picture. I, too, like the all Mike all the time channel.

  15. Rachael November 17, 2015 / 5:08 am

    Yep, all Mike all the time is as good as it gets. Can’t ask for more than that! πŸ™‚
