Careening off the thread, I'm reminded of the old Li'l  Abner comic strips 
and an interesting bit of trivia. The strip's creator, Al  Capp, was very 
unpolitically correct. He had two characters, Lonesome Polecat  and Hairless 
Joe who 
resided in a cave making this incredibly powerful liquor  called Kickapoo Joy 
Juice. Living with them in this cave was the occasional  great dinosaur or 
other prehistoric animal. As a kid they were my favorite part,  of course. It 
wasn't until only a few years ago I learned the strip at that time  was drawn 
the great master, Frank Frazetta (ghosting for Capp). No wonder!  His 
Moonbeam McSwine wasn't bad either! DV:
