Fluffy Dinosaurs

 ... had unique feather structure.

But I'm still thinking Silkies.  After all the stories about hens producing atavistic dinosaurs ("They're chickens, man!  Just optimize 'em!") I am now imagining this happening ... and the resulting dinosaur going broody and sitting on Volkswagons.

Stylet would laugh until he blew Jazz soda out his nose.  Because in T-America, mistakes with your dinosaurs make you a laughingstock.


Poetry Fishbowl Report for November 21, 2017

Our featured series in the bonus round was Feathered Nests, which you can find via the Serial Poetry page. I wrote from 1:30 PM to 12:30 AM, so about 9 hours accounting for breaks -- and I finished all the prompters with 7 poems in one day. \o/

Participation was light, with 7 comments on LiveJournal and another 26 on Dreamwidth.
