Get this. The New Zealand geology folks have webcams set on several volcanoes, which shoot on the hour.

This one is on the highly active White Island, near the caldera:

Look close and you will see a strange object in the lower left, which looks suspiciously like "Dino" from the Flintstones. Apparently some field tripping student left it there. The funny part is that neither the geologists nor major regional news outlets seem to know its identity!

"Pink dinosaur" indeed. I'm an odd bloke, and I think this is hilarious. Tongue

White island dinosaur sighted!

It just got a whole lot better. That fine news outlet (ABC) has picked up the APN "pink dinosaur' story verbatum, and altho they added a pic and fixed the engilsh a bit they also failed to recognize our well-known cartoon friend!
