"Tharooraurus anyone?" read the ad which had Twitter laughing out loud.
In response, Mr Tharoor tweeted that while he was 'butterly honoured' to be featured, he felt like a 'Tharoorosaurus Rex' or an 'ancient creature soon to be extinct, snuffed out in a cloud of incomprehension....'
Butterly honoured. But I feel like a Tharoorosaurus Rex, an ancient creature soon to be extinct, snuffed out in a cloud of incomprehension.... https://t.co/2VnkHlla1c- Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) December 15, 2017
People loved Mr Tharoor's play on Tyrannosaurus Rex. Here's what they had to say:

His tweet has been 'liked' over 1,000 times since being shared just eight hours ago.
Amul's creative came after Mr Tharoor took to Twitter on December 13 to address everybody who parodied his style of writing and speaking by saying that he chose his words to fit the ideas he wanted to convey and not because they are obscure or rodomontade ones.
To all the well-meaning folks who send me parodies of my supposed speaking/writing style: The purpose of speaking or writing is to communicate w/ precision. I choose my words because they are the best ones for the idea i want to convey, not the most obscure or rodomontade ones!- Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) December 13, 2017
