Finally the truth can be told! Here's the real story behind the mystery of dinosaur extinction. The underlying cause of the creatures' elimination can be traced back to their unhealthy fascination with underwear. This eventually led to jealously, blatant hostility and the outbreak of the deadly Underpants War!

'It all began when cavemen
Felt embarrassed in the nude,
So someone dreamed up underpants
To stop them from looking crude.

And that's exactly when the problem started. Sporting a variety of flashy underpants, the cavemen soon attracted the attention of other creatures who wanted to emulate them.

'When T. rex saw Man's undies,
He roared with deafening rants,
"I don't want to eat you up,
I want your underpants!"

Soon Styracosaurus, Triceratops, Diplodocus and the Woolly Mammoth were squeezing into colorful briefs that pinched something awful. It was then the cavemen realized, 'These dinos are undies crazy, they've completely run amok!'

Unfortunately, by that time - 'undies were flying everywhere, all torn by tooth and claw. The dinosaurs were fighting in a great briefs tug-of-war.'

With the conflict raging night and day it got so crazy that eventually all the dinos were wiped out. So, I guess you could say they were done in by their panties!

'So when you put your undies on,
Always treat them with great care.
Don't forget briefs saved Mankind
They're not just underwear!

Now what could be funnier than this splendid account of what caused the disappearance of the dinosaur? Perfect for reading aloud, this rollicking tale of prehistoric misadventure will have children four and older giggling with glee as you uncover the mystery!
