Dinosaurs Attack: Day Thirteen

Well, here it is on Day 13 of our retrospective on the Dinosaurs Attack cards, and for once we get not a trace of the usual gore, but rather more outright humor. The clueless surfer enjoys a once-in-a-lifetime wave, shortly before he wipes out for good. This is another reason I would have loved to have seen a live-action movie based on these cards. Can you imagine this scene on screen?

Some days you just can't win. You leap from a building to escape the flames consuming your body, directly onto the back of a Polacanthus, where you continue to burn as you writhe in agony, impaled on multiple spikes. Don't you hate it when that happens?


See that dino climbing Big Ben in the background? Seems I recall a scene like that in the American version of Godzilla back in 1998. Coincidence? You decide....
