To truly understand Emery’s misery in this strip, you sort of have to be familiar with the original Land of the Lost, which was painfully cheesy stuff.

Today’s comic is classic case of “Be careful what you wish for,” Internet. Lots of people think it would be awesome to have their own pet dinosaur, and let’s face it…I would totally forego this warning given the opportunity. At the end of the day though, you have an ancient, primal, and possibly predatory beast living in your home.

This particular one is a Dromaeosaur (The raptor family. I should have drawn it with feathers but you know…) and while movies tend to grossly exaggerate their intelligence (probably), they were pretty clever. Clever enough to watch TV maybe, and what happens if this deadly hunter only wants to watch Jurassic Park over and over again?

Think about it.
