My list of "The Best of the Christian Classics" would probably not include stuff written by "Uncle Bud," "Anonymous," Arthur Zepp, and William E.

The wimpy front legs (arms?, wings?) should have given it away sooner. Click here: FOXNews.com - Study: Tyrannosaurus Rex Basically a Big Chicken - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology
