Redaction: Basilosaurus is not a dinosaur.

Just to clear the air, we mistakenly accused Basilosaurus, an extinct sea monster, of being a dinosaur at a recent purity rally. Several signs were given out stating that Basilosaurus was an unAmerican dinosaur ally due to an intern’s confusion between ancient whales and late Cretaceous era plesiosaurs*. The intern has been reprimanded (forced to watch Carnosaur in a dark room, three times) and we here at D!WTF? would like to extend our apologies. Basilosaurus is a whale, and whales are as American as they come.
*Cretaceous era plesiosaurs are also not dinosaurs, but may have been secret dinosaur allies.
