T-Rex: Party hats!
T-Rex: WHY ARE THEY CONICAL?
Dromiceiomimus: Obvious, isn't it? So when the party gets really wild you can cut them up to make ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas.
Utahraptor: I went to a party once where the hats were cube shaped.
T-Rex: Was it a cool party?
Utahraptor: No, they were all squares.
T-Rex: It was probably just edgier than you are used to.
