Given today’s Daily List, it felt so right to post this video of what happened when one of the intricate full-scale puppets from the Walking with Dinosaurs stage show visited a school in Australia. Sure it’s heartwarming, but how many of these kids do you think were scarred for life by this? Just listen to those screams! So much terror! I bet the teachers are still cleaning the piss up from the hallways. All I know is that the next time Walking with Dinosaurs stops by my town I am definitely getting a ticket. The puppetry on display here is jaw-dropping, and I think I’m old enough that it won’t scare the poop out of me. Well, probably won’t. (Via Boing Boing)
