I don't want to be a wet blanket

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar, Jonathan Gan, Ian Boreham

T-Rex: When choosing a quilt, do you prefer duck, goose, ...
T-Rex: or EIDER?
Dromiceiomimus: I'm down with either.
Dromiceiomimus: (Actually, I should have said "any".)
T-Rex: Why correct it? You could have double-downed!
Utahraptor: T-Rex!
Utahraptor: An eider is in fact a type of duck. Ergo, your joke does not work.
T-Rex: That's cold comfort.
T-Rex: Hmm. Maybe it needs some patchwork.

A thing we learnt while researching this strip: In the USA, doonas are called "comforters".
