Where there’s one dinosaur, there are often others. Such is the case, reader Michael Stearns tells us, in Granger, Washington. Not only does the town have a dinosaur sculpture park, but various dinosaurs adorn vehicles around town. On the truck pictured above, a Triceratops strikes a pose on the vehicle’s grill. I know that’s supposed to be grass beneath it, but the spikes make me think of flames and, therefore, grilled Triceratops. I like mine medium, please.
