Re: Albertaceratops (simpson's bi-annual b*tch about dino naming)

When I was in college (back when the dinosaurs ruled ;) ) we used to make what we called Kickapoo joy Juice...everyone brought a quart of their favorite beverage (alcoholic of course) and we put it into this HUGE pot with some fruit and let it sit for a week...that stuff was LETHAL tasted innocuous but WOW!! it's a wonder we didn't all poison ourselves :D

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 by
the great master, Frank Frazetta (ghosting for Capp). No wonder! His
Moonbeam McSwine wasn't bad either! DV:
