"When you look at these set[s] of sequences, they, as a whole set, have the closest similarity to [those of a] chicken, which would support the previous reports that birds evolved from dinosaurs or are closely related at least."So next time, think twice before you call someone "chicken" for being a coward aye and remember when you eat your KFC, you are actually eating T-Rex. Yummy.
Of the seven sequences, three matched collagen peptide scripts from chickens, one matched a frog and another matched a salamander; the other two matched multiple organisms, including chickens and salamanders.

Back then, my neighbour had a pet canary. Armed with my new found knowledge, I would go over to her place often and asked her, "How's your T-Rex today?"
