China Discovers Remains of Bird-Like Dinosaur

The missing link has been found!  Dr. Alan Grant from Jurassic Park was right!  Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself, but it looks like China found the remains of a surprisingly bird-ish dinosaur.  Scientists fought off dozens of Chinese sous chefs who quickly tried to serve it with soy sauce.
Eight meters (26 ft) long and standing at twice the height of a man at the shoulder, the fossil of the feathered but flightless Gigantoraptor erlianensis was found in the Erlian basin in Inner Mongolia, researchers wrote in the latest issue of Nature.
Essentially, imagine a gay T-Rex wearing a feather boa.
