Asphaltosaur Fossil!

'Sensational Rare Discovery of Asphaltosaur Fossil!' This is whimsical. What you are really looking at is the weathered smooshed-in remains of Asphalt tar pressed into a concrete road to patch cracks in the highway. Looks like a dino, yes? so, just a humorous commentary on those cheap shopping store weekly gossip magazines (Inquirer, Globe, etc.) -- a form of sensationalist 'Yellow Journalism' and their exaggerated stories. I fooled many friends with this pict, drawing serious - so-called - intelligent answers to this hoax.
