This parody image has been making the rounds lately. It's the work of Nick Farrantello, who posted it on his blog Rational Crank. On Facebook, I jokingly asked where Dr. Thomas Holtz was. Of course, he didn't think he deserved a spot, but let's face it: we'd like to see some paleontologists at the table. So let's put it up for debate: what paleontologists would we set at a Paleontology Last Supper? This needn't be limited to dinosaur paleontology, or even vertebrate paleontology. We've got thirteen spots to fill with the people who have given us the most insight into the lost worlds of the past. Who should sit at them?
