Right with you. I thought surely this has to be a joke name.

Dickinsonia was first described by Reg Sprigg, the original discoverer of the Ediacaran biota in Australia,[4] who named it after Ben Dickinson, then Director of Mines for South Australia, and head of the government department that employed Sprigg.

 

Please grow up.

Hey, The Life of Brian mentioned a Roman called Bigus Dickus. Now, if that (albeit controversial) historical documentary can say such a name without eliciting laughter, so can this article. Grow up, people.
