Geo Art: An inconvenient truth about extinction

It's seems that Geo-Art is spreading trough the Geoblogosphere. Here a short cartoon proving finally why the dinosaurs got extinct, and mammals get the victory gesture - seen in the legendary diary hold in the small inn in the Gubbio gorge (Umbria - Italy) with the infamous C/T iridium anomaly (the first entry in the book is by Alvarez itself):

Wonderful! I know that book, I signed it when we ate at the restaurant! I have a picture of my own little drawing of the dinosaur at http://virtual.yosemite.cc.ca.us/ghayes/Florence%20and%20Pisa.htm

It was a wonderful dining experience, and humbling to be part of the heritage of geologists coming to visit the site!

Haha - yes, this small tavern and this book was a wonderful experience, and the "must be" foto on THE OUTCROP also.

The owner recognized immediately what kind of turist he got (again) in his inn...
