The Smith family, from Barnstaple are still clearing up, after making the mistake of inviting their neighbours, a family of Tyrannosaurus Rexs to Christmas lunch.
Mrs Smith told us: 'They are a new family to the area, and we felt that the polite, right thing to do was to invite them round to our house for Christmas lunch. I always cook too much, and we are eating it for days after, so I thought if we invited the Jones from next door, but it was a disaster'
Mrs Smith continued, 'Off course, Dinosaurs are not really designed to fit in the average house, so we had to eat in the garden, just to seem polite, but the wind played havoc with the candles, and I didn't cook enough food.
'The Turkey which usually feeds the six of us, only fed one of the Jones's children, and their hands, as weedy and short as they are did not fit over the table, so they were practically punching us, and of course, the children could not play together.
'Their children kept trying to eat ours, whilst their tails bought down our two side walls, they did not offer to help with the washing up, and they ate all of the after eight mints we had. Needless to say, we won't be inviting them back next year. No, we will be inviting Mr and Mrs Small from across the road, we don't like them for their right wing, Nazi views, but at least the house will still be standing when they leave.'
Mr Smith has not been seen since Christmas day.
