This just proves once again that size... won't save you from parasites.

Yeah, I hesitated to post this due to it being a fox article, but it seems non-partisan enough, (unless it's a metaphor of some kind; like now that I think about it maybe the T-rex is supposed to be Obama and the parasites are right wing pundits) so I went with it.

It's a competitive thing. Fox and Drabblenews are always competing to be the first to come up with the really odd stories. It's always a little disappointing when fox gets there first, but it's just more incentive to be vigilant and scoop them next time.
