    Call me crazy, but I’ve seen this somewhere else…
    1776, was it?

    In my home city of Philadelphia, where we got rid of King George III. Happy Independence Day to all Americans!
    On the other hand, this reminds me a lot more of 1215, when King John signed the Magna Carta.

    Never realized that this was leading up to the 4th of July ending.

    How can you invent the Fourth of July in Prehistoric Moo? It didn’t occur until 1776!

    Happy 4th of July greetings to the Benders and the readers of Alley Oop. Today strip they are celebrating the Moovian
    Constitution which hadn’t been written yet. Sorta like the
    geniuses in congress who voted for Obamacare without even reading it first for any problems. Guz is like the
    Wizard of Oz. He is being ask to give to the people what they
    already have ( I always liked the song Tin Man by
    America). A constitution should just spell out the rights
    the people already have. A beginning would be the preamble to the US constitution
    ‘We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.’

    How did pre-historic know it was the 4th of July? The Julian calendar hadn’t been invented yet, and the month was named for Julius Caesar, who wouldn’t be born for thousands of years.

    But then again, who would expect historic accuracy from a strip that shows cavemen riding dinosaurs?

    Big problem here. They are talking about government “giving people rights” instead of talking about government recognizing the rights that people have because they are born with them. They are human, just like the arrogant fools who call themselves government.

    Happy 4th to all.

    Fact check:
    However remember that the 4th was the date they voted on the Declaration of Independence. Long before the Constitutional Convention started work on the Constitution.

    I thought I posted something. I recon I forgot to hit submit. But check out Alley Oop on 11-25-2012
    I can halfway understand not remembering something Mr Hamlin or Mr Graue wrote, but to forget something you wrote?
    This is past ridiculous! and TexMichael has pointed out the miseducation of confusing the signing of the constitution with the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
    Mr & Mrs Bender, Please step down and let a younger more imaginative writer and artist take over this strip.
    Ive just finished reading everything on Go comics from 1-1-1996 (Thats the earliest date I could find in the GoComics archive. If i could find another archive, Id go back further)
    I see a rapid progression of incompentency along the way. Some comments kept hating on the Benders and in one way I cant blame them.
    Ive tried to be patient. Ive tried to keep quiet. Its one thing to rewrite a comic strip, But DONT TRY TO REWRITE HISTORY!
    The work on this strip aint about ignernt… it IS ignernt!

    Actually, Guz says only “a constitution”, not “the Constitution of 1787”. Work started on the Articles of Confederation in mid-1776 (and, at that, it did little more than formalize the de-facto status quo under the Second Continental Congress).

    @Colonel Claus

    You’re right, Colonel. On the 11/25/10 strip Oop is surprised to find out that there is a constitution. I remember thinking how stupid that story was but Carole should have remembered what she wrote. This entire story, which started at the beginning of the year, has been absolutely awful. There is no other way to describe it. The Benders need to go.
