I don't plan on making parodying Ryan North's excellent Dinosaur Comics into a habit. I just had this idea floating around in my head ever since the first two parody strips, and decided it had been long enough to give it a go.

North's humour is based on his characters not acting like dinosaurs. So...

This is probably an example of deconstructionist humour or something similarly highbrow. RAAARRRHH!

2016-03-04 Rerun commentary: I've actually discovered since making this comic that the art is not in fact copyright work of Ryan North. He took some royalty-free clip art of dinosaurs and constructed his comic format out of those.

Who'da thunk??

(Well, I suppose Ryan's particular recognisable layout of the six panels might qualify for a copyright as a transformative work. I'm not really sure. Certainly, adding the text gives him something copyrightable.)
