One of the biggest, and stinkiest, problems in the wake of the Dino-Day Disaster was what to do with all the dinosaur dung that was left behind. Dr. Amazing has volunteered to use it as fertilizer.
“Dung is nature’s natural fertilizer,” he said. “It’s full of nutrients that plants need in order to grow, and with so much of it around, it just makes sense to use it in the Future Farm.”
Dr. Amazing and robots from ATOM Labs have been scooping up as much of the dino dung as they could and hauling back to ATOM Labs for study. First, they wanted to have samples available for paleontologists to study and also to see if there were any remnants of the Dinosaur Queen’s magic left over. “The last thing we wanted,” said Dr. Amazing, “was for whatever magical particles that turned us into dinosaurs to be left in the dung, and if it were to fertilize crops, we had to make sure nothing evil got transferred to the food, which might turn people back into dinosaurs if they ate a tomato for instance.”
“Luckily, the occult section of ATOM Labs has given us the all clear,” said Dr. Amazing. “I don’t put much stock into magic personally, but it happens, so we have to be careful.”
Dr. Amazing hopes that the dino dung will naturally speed up the growth of his crops. “No one wants artificial chemicals put into their food,” he said. “So we’re going to use the next best thing. Which is dinosaur dung.”
Dr. Amazing’s wife, Snow Woman, did not comment.
