Jack Chick: serious scholar

You know every once in a while you realize that the English language is lacking sufficient punctuation marks. Yeah, there's the interrobang, but when was the last time you saw one of those in print? What's truly missing is a way of marking off sarcasm. I mean, Jack Chick‽ (I'm proud of myself: I held back on the obscene infix there)
Jack Chick has been doing his Chick-Tracts shtick for quite a while. Everyone knows him. He's a King James only type with a very, very literal view on everything. He also seems to like every conspiracy theory that even walks past him on the street. But his real mad-on comes when he hears about anything to do with science, secularism or the occult. Please don't ask how wide a net the word occult seems to cast.
Friend DEG has been sending me links to these things (esp. Big Daddy) for years.
Seems Jack has rediscovered the trend in Cretinism Creationism that's trying to account for the dinosaurs.
And the answer is Dino-burgers.
It's like the opening credits to the Flintstones.

Jack Chick and Kent Hovind have a way of picking my day up. No matter what happens, no matter how stunned I fell, I'm not those guys.
