->'''Anonymous asked''': What dinosaur would be best for selective breeding to produce an animal with a lot of edible meat. What dinosaur could become a cow dinosaur\\

Added DiffLines:

->A characteristic of Vermonters (at least as portrayed in humorous stories) is that the Vermonter, when asked a question, gives accurate answers but often fails to include information which may be highly relevant and very important. A perfect illustration of this principle is the joke about one Vermont farmer who went to his neighbor’s farm and asked the other farmer, “Lem, what did you give your horse last year when it had the colic?” Lem replied, “Bran and molasses.” The farmer went home, returned one week later, and said, “Lem, I gave my horse bran and molasses, and it died.” Lem replied, “So did mine.”
