A couple of days ago Australia’s Science Agency issued a national apology that they hadn’t yet created or discovered a dragon. I’ll be the first to say that we’ll forgive them so long as they redouble their efforts and give us a dragon by the end of the decade. We dragon lovers are patient people, but we will come burn down your laboratory if you fail us again.
Australia’s national science agency has apologised to the nation for failing to invent “a dragon or dragon eggs” after a seven-year-old girl, Sophie Lester, wrote a letter asking the scientists to make her a dragon.
“I would like it if you could, but if you can’t that’s fine,” she wrote, after begging her parents for a baby dragon for Christmas.
In the letter, addressed “Hello lovely scientist”, Sophie promised to call the dragon “Toothless” if it were a girl, and “Stuart” if it were a boy.
In a response posted on its website, the agency, the CSIRO, said it was proud of its work since 1926 but regretted that it had yet to create or observe a dragon “of the fire breathing variety”.
“Over the past 87 odd years we have not been able to create a dragon or dragon eggs,” it said.
“We have sighted an eastern bearded dragon at one of our telescopes, observed dragonflies and even measured body temperatures of the mallee dragon. But our work has never ventured into dragons of the mythical, fire breathing variety. And for this Australia, we are sorry.”
Hello lovely scientist,
I appreciate your apology, but I want you to know if you continue to fail us you’re going to wish you had created a dragon and he was the one that was mad at you not us.
