10,000 chickens battle 20 Tyrannosauruses Rex

Someone simulated a battle of 10,000 chickens against 20 T. Rex and it’s completely unrealistic

What the cluck?

Someone decided to create a video simulation of 20 Tyrannosauruses Rex vs. 10,000 chickens, and while 300 percent amusing, it’s also, of my own speculation, wildly inaccurate.

In this video from Lazy Game Reviews, 10,000 battle-crying chickens manage to kill 20 T. Rex in less than 50 seconds. Which is just, like, completely generous and rooted nowhere in the realm of feasibility. You know, just like a battle between chickens and their dead ancestors.

Like yeah, sure, these 10,000 seemingly-unafraid chickens are totally capable of taking down 20 T. Rex that, when combined, weigh 50 times as much as all 10,000 chickens together (if each chicken weighed seven pounds and each T. Rex nine tons, on average—yes, I googled it).

Totally. Yup. I believe it.

But c’mon, even if these chickens were capable of standing strong in the face of danger and even if they might be smarter than previously believed (BBC reports that chickens can count, empathize, and even manipulate each other, which totally sounds like something a chicken would write, but I digress) how would they even go about killing 20 T. Rex?

Pecking the dinos to death, as alleged in the simulation? Fluttering atop each other in Power Ranger formation to create one giant mega-chicken? Such a chicken coup seems vastly improbable—the laws of physics just do not add up.

Watch the entire chicken vs. dino throw down below:

Wake me up if they ever decide to simulate a battle between dinosaurs and those frighteningly big chickensThat I might believe.
