Quick Question, Deep Thought, Brain Hiccup, You Decide ...

Per my preschoolers new obsession with dinosaurs, I gander:

Why did Scientist Biologist So-and-So have to name the prehistoric creatures such complicated names ("anatosaurus, ankylosaurus, pteranodon," etc., etc.)?

I realize "c-a-t" and "d-o-g" were already taken but what's wrong with "y-a-r-f" or "l-o-p" or "m-i-g?"

Tell Me?!

Do you know how much easier my life would be if while stirring a steaming pot with a baby tucked under my arm I could answer my son's "What's that?" with a:

"Dup" and a pat on the head.

I like that idea yes, I like it a lot! Let's make up names for all the Dinosaurs. Gee, you are right boys are fun! Soreheel is one I like. Saratops, Bugcheek, Snootybottoms.
See ya
