Before I get to the strip, allow me to reprint a bit of The Tepid Ride from October of 2010:
The 2010 Prime Time Lineup- As It Should Be.
This one hour drama follows Oog the caveman, a Neanderthal ahead of his time. Not content to hunt for food, avoid mammoths, and just survive, Oog looked to the stars. While no smarter than the average caveman, Oog built the first working spacecraft, all the way back in 10,000 B.C.
Through a freak mishap, Oog found himself propelled forward to our time, where he now works as a consultant for NASA.
Now consider this recent installment of the long-running Alley Oop comic strip:
That’s my Caveman Astronaut! Alley Oop is a caveman ahead of his time, somehow moved into the future, building a spacecraft and about to go into space.
I demand reparations! A credit below the title! A cut of the profits! Alley Oop ripped me off! And its lettering is too small.
