New evidence has emerged that Sinosauropteryx was ginger!

The BBC wrote:
A team of scientists from China and the UK has now revealed that the bristles of this 125-million-year-old dinosaur were in fact ginger-coloured feathers.

The researchers say that the diminutive carnivore had a "Mohican" of feathers running along its head and back. It also had a striped tail.

Since when is "ginger" a color? The last time I checked, it was primarily a food...

In England, it's slag for a red-head.

Someone with more Photoshop skills than me needs to put some Conan O'Brien hair on a dinosaur.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

There's a hole South Park episode about "gingers". Cartman eventually gets pranked into thinking he's one, after persecuting them initially. It's where I first heard the term.



According to Cartman, the dinosaurs would have an ailment known as "gingervitis", and would lack a soul.
