I love this. When the Far Side came out in 1982, paleontologists realised they'd never actually named that part of a stegosaurus and began using the term informally. And now, 36 years later, if you type "Thagomizer" into a search engine...

OK, this tweet blew up a bit. I assumed all my followers would know this, but just to be clear... the cartoon is by Gary Larson and is part of his "Far Side" series. If you don't know it, then you owe it to yourself to find a bookshop tomorrow and buy at least one Far Side book.

I love this! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ In college mid-1980s, I used to relax by reading Far Side cartoons at the bookstore. Gary Larson should be proud - or at least laugh -- that his neologism contributed to the field of paleontology.

It's worth it just for the "Shh, the maestro is decomposing" comic.

I am especially fond of his vulture cartoons. Too lazy to find the right book, but my favorite caption was something like โ€œWell, howdy, howdy, howdy!โ€

The Far side is genius in visual form.
