I’m saddened to find out that I misinterpreted this comic. When T-Rex says “Now, I myself am a tremendomeatatarian, which means that I only eat meat that I find to be tremendously delicious,” I took him to be saying that he was like a vegetarian, but with an exception for tremendously delicious meat. I thought that made a lot of sense given the etymology of ‘tremendomeatarian’. It makes a little bit less sense in light of the fact that, biologically speaking, T-Rex should be carnivorous. Finally, it is proven wrong as an interpretation by T-Rex’s later comment about the “golly gosh-darn scurvy.”
The especially frustrating part is that I’ve been going around preaching the gospel of tremendomeatarianism to various random acquaintances. Not only would a new name undermine those efforts, the past thirty minutes of wracking my brain suggests that no new name is forthcoming.
