CALLING ALL CHRISTMAS AND SANTA CLAUS JOKES
I know it’s not even Halloween yet, but as I was browsing the jokes sent in by kids around the world, I noticed
that we do not have any Santa Claus or Christmas jokes. If you know one, can you share it with us?
Returning to more timely topics, here’s a Halloween joke from Brianne L., age 9, New Liskeard, Ontario, Canada:
Why do witches fly on brooms?
Because vacuums are too heavy!
You’ll find more Halloween jokes here:
See ya on the Net,

Dinosaurs Printable (** for premium members only)
Named from two Greek words meaning “terrible lizard,” dinosaurs first appeared about 220 million years ago, and then disappeared rather suddenly 63 million years ago. Dinosaurs capture our imagination in many different ways. Their tremendous size, their fearsome looks, and the mystery of their extinction are but a few of the dinosaur wonders worth pondering.
“To be truthful, the unfortunate fact about the popularity of dinosaurs is that the science that it is based on occasionally is obscured by the fantasy that surrounds it.” From the Museum of Palenotology at the University of California, Berkeley, Dino Buzz dispels some common myths and explores dinosaur debates such as What Killed the Dinosaurs? and Hot Blooded or Cold Blooded? They also include a handful of excellent links to resources both onsite and offsite.
Field Museum: Sue
Who is Sue? “Sue is the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex. She was discovered by fossil hunter Sue Hendrickson in 1990, in the badlands of South Dakota.” Following a long custody battle, Sue was sold at Sotheby’s auction house October 4, 1997. The Field Museum purchased Sue for nearly $8.4 million â€“ the most money ever paid for a fossil.
On May 17, 2000 , the museum revealed Sue. She stands thirteen feet high at her hips and is forty-two feet long from head to tail.
National Geographic: Wanted: Albertosaurus
“Last seen alive 68 million years ago in an area now called Alberta in Canada. Has powerful jaws and sharp teeth, but poses no immediate danger. Evidence of an Albertosaurus mass burial found about 90 years ago, but exact site not known. Information leading to its whereabouts requested by dino detective Phillip Currie.” Learn how real-life palaeontologist Currie tracked down the missing burial site. Curie and his team have, so far, unearthed the remains of twelve Albertosaurs, evidence that these carnivores probably lived in packs.
