| Dinos Soar in Small Town !
|(FromThe Daily Progress, Charlottesville, VA, April 5, 2003)
| Prankster Mark Cline came back from the future for this year's April foolery. Previously, the Lexington-area fiberglass artist had planted flying saucers along Interstate 81.
| This year, folks in nearby Glasgow (Virginia) woke up to find dinosaurs invading the village. A tyrannosaurus rex poked its head out of James's Auto Repair shop. Outside the Grocery Express, a cowboy roped a triceratops. Some dinos were hoisted onto rooftops.
| Mr. Cline sought permission from businesses before launching the invasion. "I said, 'That sounds good to me,' " reported James Wilcher, owner of the auto repair shop. "I'm always good for a joke."
| Said Mr. Cline: "During this day and age, people need a chance to smile, people need a chance to laugh . . . This is a happy invasion."
| Jules Verne would have loved it, too.
Listen To Me, Now . . . !
Pay Attention There, 'Tops!
Now looky here, triceratops
I got my loop on you
Just lumber along like a goody dog
And do what I tell ya to
I know ya like the green, green, grass
And all plants great and small
And a big, big, gulp from a runnin stream
Who really knows what all?
But pony and me are here to see
You git along on home
Well put you in a pasture, green
So you dont have to roam.
