"As a somewhat hilarious postscript, the present-day living creature with the closest genetic similarity to T. rex is... the chicken."

I'm not a geneticist, but given that birds come from a different theropod lineage than tyrannosaurs, shouldn't ALL birds be equally genetically distant from Tyrannosaurus?
