WORLD'S SMALLEST DINOSAUR FOUND

Amazing Discovery in Remote Mountains
By Smartmouse V. Brainey

MOLE MOUNTAIN, OUTER MOUSITANIA-Dr. Doris Diggersnout, the acclaimed paleontologist, announced today the discovery of the world's smallest dinosaur. Unearthed last week in the uninhabited mountains of Outer Mousitania, the fossil creature is about the size of a small mouse.

Dr. Diggersnout, herself a mouse of medium size, calls the creature Mousosaurus. While rival scientists were out looking for larger and larger dinosaurs, she has won the race to find the smallest.

"Every time someone says they've found the world's largest dinosaur," she said, "somebody else comes along and finds a larger one. I decided to think small and beat them all at their own game."

Mousosaurus has sharp triangular plates running down its back and a single horn in the middle of its forehead. Otherwise, it looks just like a rodent, with a long tail, big ears, and whiskers.

The Mouse Island Museum of Natural History plans to exhibit the Mousosaurus in a special room designed as a mouse-hole like the one the creature lived in 39 million years ago. As for Dr. Diggersnout, she plans to extend her Mousitania expedition for another full year.

"We are still digging," says the noted scientist. "In hopes of discovering prehistoric cheese."

ACCIDENT AT CHEESE FACTORY
Runny Cheese Spill Disrupts Traffic-School Canceled

NEW MOUSE CITY-A vat overturned early today at the Gourmet Cheese Company plant, sending a river of liquid cheese out into Ratford Avenue and bringing traffic to a standstill. The nearby George Mousington Elementary School became an island in a lake of runny yellow stuff.

Young rodents on their way to school found the way blocked by thousands of gallons of the gooey liquid. While they were staring in amazement, a pupil identified as Billy De Ratte pushed little Matthew Mousekin in. But instead of getting stuck, the young mouse began splashing around and shouting to his friends, "Come on in! The cheese is fine!"

Dozens of schoolrodents took the hint, dove in, and joined him. Soon, a crowd gathered to watch the fun. When the school principal, Mr. Goodrat, finally arrived and tried to restore order, the unruly swimmers splashed him all over with the smelly stuff.

Realizing that there was no danger and that the youngsters were having a grand time, he declared school canceled for the day.

Then, with a loud shout of "Wheee!" he made a perfect swan dive into the cheese, a feat that was greeted by loud cheers from youngsters and grown rodents alike.
