Jurassic World Dominion brings familiar and new dinosaurs to the franchise, including the Therizinosaurus. Some of them look great, while others leave something to be desired. However, some audiences are sure to laugh at the Therizinosaurus that serves ‘periodt’ meme hands in Jurassic World Dominion. You’ll never unsee it.

What is the ‘periodt’ meme?

The word periodt adds emphasis to the world by intentionally misspelling the word with a “t” at the end. The meme’s origins track back to Black Twitter communities. It was especially implemented with the quote: “and that’s on periodt.” However, the meme ultimately spread across social media for people to punctuate their posts.

The periodt meme evolved over time with social media editing various photographs to include long nails on the hands of celebrities where the fingers reach to the bottom of the palm. Some folks specifically edited pictures of Chris Evans from movies such as The Avengers to include the periodt meme with acrylic nails.
