Bone-bothering US boffins have identified a new species of prehistoric crocodile, nicknamed "Shieldcroc" because of a flat ornamental skin shield on its ginormous head.

Eyes too close
The eyes are to close together, maybe thats why its extinct, no depth perception.
We need a "I wanna go back to bed" icon
@We need a "I wanna go back to bed" icon
First, we need an icon for "We need an icon for..."
Paris, because she's an icon for icons, and we don't have an icon for meta-icon jokes.
'mate-attracting' skin helmet
Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
A shieldcroc walks into a bar..
Yeah, I know, the one with the oldest jokebook in the world in the pocket
Why the long face?
Because shieldcroc was a fan of Scottish band Big Country!!!!! (7th album by the way)
Mine's the one with the obscure CD in the pocket
did it taste like chicken?
Mine is the one with the "cooking with crocodiles" book in the pocket
Wonderful world we live in
If we want to impress the ladies we can just head to a clothes store and pick up some tie dyes. Back in the day you had to wait 1,000,000 years to evolve a sexy new look.
"It is possible that it lay in wait until an unsuspecting fish swam in front of it"?
That sounds cheaper than a pizza delivery to me? Lazy bastard!
US Boffins? -- Nuh, must be misquote!
"The scientists reckon Shieldcrocs were wandering the Earth around 95 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs were also still about."
Nuh, not 95 million years ago.
Silly mistake. 'Tis a US report, so Shieldcrocs can't be older than 6000 years!
(Thought everyone knew that by now.)
Dammit, beat me to it!
Ha. My apologies sir.
Which sounded too much like an unpleasant phrase.
Eyes too close

Either that or "eyes too close" was a sexual turnoff then as it is now.
I thought skin helmets were coming back into fashion?
Skin helmets are back, AC.
They are quite in fashion with the neo-nazis. Just shave your head. Have something tattooed on it, perhaps the lyrics to The Horst Wessel Lied, and get your black leathers out of pawn.
You will be the dernier cri once again. :-)
are still lamenting that neo-nazis took over the skin-head fashion.
