(PIX11) — When one man jokingly posted an old picture of acclaimed director Steven Spielberg on the set of “Jurassic Park,” some users angrily rebuked him for “poaching,” apparently unaware that dinosaurs are all extinct.

The picture shows Spielberg sitting next to what appears to be a set model of a Triceratops.

He is smiling though the “animal” next to him appears lifeless. The caption reads “Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.”


The picture was uploaded by Jay Branscomb, who was clearly having a laugh, perhaps in connection with the Belgian model spotted at the World Cup whose big-game hunting photo has her under fire.

For many Facebook users, Branscomb’s joke went over their heads.

For others, the day grown adults believed Spielberg killed a triceratops needed to be memorialized in memes …

    Uh huh. Those user comments were jokes. And THEY went over people’s heads. But then again, maybe THIS article was a joke, and THAT’S going over MY head. So maybe ANOTHER article will be posted, and THAT will have a comment like mine that uses CAPS LOCK.
