Default Weirdest "Blurb" on the back of a card

Most cards have a little blurb/paragraph/a few sentences written about the player on the card. Usually its about the past season or a game they had.

Today I got in my Ersan Ilyasova 12/13 Contenders base card and read the back of the card, and I must say, its one of the strangest backs I have ever read.

It reads:

Now classified as an adult Triceratops, the Torosaurus had the largest skull, nearly 9 feet long, of any land animal. One of those skulls, the largest dino dome in the world, is located at the Milwaukee Public Museum. Ilyasova one-ups the fossilized giant by playing head and shoulders above his competition for the Bucks.

Breathtaking. Humorous, educational, and complimentary. That belongs in the back-of -card-blurb Hall of Fame.

You should read the blurbs of late 90s skybox cards. They give off the vibe of fake hip-hop cool kids lol.

Hower and Tracy must be messing with you. They give you shout outs in Product teases, maybe now they are taking it a little further?

I don't have any in front of me but the black box flag patch auto with the country flag of the player has really dumb ones just like this. A fact about the country that they somehow try and relate to the player...
