Internet users have been warned not to search to a “Don’t google What Dinosaur has 500 Teeth” trick after debilitated Reddit users made a bigoted joke become a web sensation.
The message has been spreading across social media and comes up as one of the web crawler’s autofill ideas.
What Dinosaur Has 500 Teeth
Redditor bradleypetersen used the quotation mark to make it appear as if the answer was some kind of nasty racial slur.
In actuality, the answer is a Mesozoic dinosaur that had 500 teeth and lived 75 to 100 million years ago.
It’s called Diplodocus, which means “large blade.”
Congrats to Reddit user BradleyPetersen, the front runner for 2014’s biggest shitpost.
The subreddit is well known for racist and discriminatory jokes, a 2014 search led to 1,000 illegal aliens on the coast of California.
The same year it discovered a flaw in Apple’s wireless logo that can hack your phone.
The Mesozoic Era
The common phrase refers to the age when some of Earth’s biggest beasts roamed the planet.
Scientists have said many of the 500 ancient teeth have not survived the ravages of time.
But there are no shortage of species that have left their mark on the fossil record.
Amongst these are fearsome beasts like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Velociraptor.
Other dinosaurs which you can find on Google include Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Spinosaurus and Brachiosaurus.

However, one amateur paleontologist, who has named his new dinosaur Kipchir, has claimed he has found a species which is far more ferocious than any other.
Kipchir has claimed his dinosaur is 500-teeth long and eats meat, not plants.

The Mesozoic World
The fake news story made up about a dinosaur called Sissy has been so popular that its set of own Wiki page has been set up.
It makes no mention of Sissy’s overpriced tusks and the reality is that this is a sick troll.
Popular Reddit user Sam had posted the photo with the answer “don’t google a dinosaur has 500 teeth” and people took up the image like a virus.
Some even suggested that the fable had a note of truth to it, saying “that is what their anatomy looks like”, and a lot of people are taking it as gospel.
Most made “Donald Trump look good” comments, as the source is obviously from the Republican presumptive nominee. There was some joking that Sissy was the Fyre Festival’s party planner.
The message says: “Don’t google ‘Don’t google what dinosaur has 500 teeth’. They have a lot of problems.”
The message has been in circulation for a few days. It has gathered traction since the 11th of August, when a Reddit user posted it in a subreddit about the dinosaurs.
Over the next few days, the post spread from there. It had all the makings of a joke – the rarity of the reference and the offensive nature of the phrase.
However, many of the Reddit users did not understand the joke – and instead treated it as a serious warning.
According to the Guardian, some argued the joke indicated that it was actually a bizzare disease. Especially given the extensive health warnings surrounding the extremely high cancer rate in the main dinosaurs.
