Just two days after a huge Tyrannosaurus rex terrorized Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park, a massive stegosaurus wandered into the city and made an almighty mess of the Fernwood neighbourhood while foraging for leafy greens.
Bearded hipsters dove for cover and scrambled to upload Instagram photos as the dinosaur’s foot came down on their prized hangout, the Cornerstone Café. Meanwhile, wide-eyed vegans in wool skull caps and thrift store togs poured from homes to check on their tomato cages and window-box herb gardens.
As the wayward stegosaurus made its way toward Government Street, onlookers noted that it had a vacant look and a dopey grin. I’m guessing someone in Fernwood will be rather dismayed to find his container garden of “medicinal marijuana” chomped to the roots.
