Complete Tyrannosaurus Rex Skeleton is the Largest in the Nation, Scientists Say

With last month's discovery of a T-Rex skeleton at a construction site on Original Avenue, the city has been thrown into the national spotlight as other cities with LEGO dinosaurs lament the size and stature of the latest discovery.

"This is just not something you see every day," said Archie Digger, a paleontologist from the local university. "A bone here and there, for sure. But a complete full-grown tyrannosaurus rex right under your feet on a downtown street? That just doesn't happen." 

Bragging rights aside, the Mayor has promised to do everything in his power to keep the monstrous fossil in town.

"A lot of people think we should sell him off to the highest bidder and fill our coffers," said Mayor Builder. "I believe that if you build it, they will come. Can I say that? If you build a dinosaur museum right here--maybe right here on the very spot where we found him--people will come and spend their time and money in our town. The hotel, the restaurants, even the movie theater can benefit from this. This is the type of thing that can save our downtown."

Community activists are quick to point out that dinosaur museums are not cheap to build or maintain. 

"The sheer size of such a building is simply impractical," said Sally Naysayer. "This town can't afford that kind of investment--especially not for a bunch of bones! Build a school. Build a library. Sell those bones and get us the things we need."

Museum supporters, on the other hand, promise to make the Mayor's vision a reality. With weekly rallies and a Lego-fund-me page  in place, only time will tell what the future holds for the prehistoric discovery the Mayor affectionately calls Rex.
