Prehistoric Diplomacy

Bizarro is brought to you today by Prehistory.

I'm happy to say that this was a very popular cartoon, judging by the mail I received. I thought of it as a purely visual gag but as it developed, it became a nice statement about the way different people think. Some of us try to solve problems with cooperation, logic, shared information and common interests, others want to use a hammer. I'll let you draw your own conclusions from there, political and otherwise. One could easily see this as a cartoon about foreign policy, of course.

Cutting it short today, it's 80 degrees and sunny in Brooklyn and CHNW and I are hopping on the motorbike and heading to Coney Island. Not for the roller coaster or freakshows, but the ride out and back will be grand. Hope things are sunny and freaky where you are.

A great cartoon that works on different levels. I hadn't thought about it until I read your statements on it.

i notice the verbal caveman has also developed a razor - a subtle hint towards civility in the interest of discussion?

wow, it took me ages to understand it. i kept thinking the guy is trying to shake hands (?) with a white alien, and the girl was telling him to use his hands to gesticulate while talking like she does in the picture.
