T-Rex: T-Rex presents The Periodic Table:
T-Rex: 30 ZINC!
T-Rex: A bluish-shite metal, which alloys with copper to form brass. It's an essential mineral in the human body, but excess consumption can cause copper deficiency.
Utahraptor: Cool! Are these facts linked?
T-Rex: Yes! You've heard of being brassed off? It derives from zinc combining with copper in the body and being excreted.
T-Rex: Zinc is also inflammable!
T-Rex: Don't you want to know about "flash in the pan"?
