#Prattkeeping Is the Best Thing on the Internet Today


Jurassic World opened last weekend, breaking all sorts of records. While that’s great and all, and dinosaurs are awesome and what not, this is the best thing that happened as a result: Prattkeeping.

In the movie, Chris Pratt does a move to assert dominance and calm down raptors. Animal keepers started to contribute their own versions, and before long a new wonderful meme was born. Check out Fusion for a longer list.

Here are some of our favorites:

Unfortunately, not everyone thinks it’s funny:

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
