    See? this is another example of how badly the B.C comic strip has lost its way. Greece and the Euro don’t come into being for at least another 10,000 years. The capitol of the B.C. comix used to be CLAMS. We miss you, Johnny!!

    According to Fowler’s Modern English Usage, CapitAl should be distinguished from CapitOl The former being the most important town or city of a country or region. The latter being a building in which an American legislative body meets, the best known of which is in Washington DC. This means that Washington DC is a Capital containing a Capitol.

    There are also the additional meanings of Capital punishment (death by execution) and of wealth as a potential investment.

    The pun in the strip is correct. Robert Briggs and ‘hsawlrae’ are incorrect.

    ‘B.C’. is itself an anachronism as people living Before Christ were, mostly (apart from the Jewish prophets), unaware of that fact. The strip is a fantasy world ‘uunkoke’.

    You do realize that actual cavemen rarely played baseball? Or celebrated Christian holidays? ‘Cause that happened all the time with Johnny Hart.
    I think I know why your confused. This isn’t a documentary, it’s a comic strip. Just keep reminding yourself of that, and you’ll be fine!

    Grease? I think it’s somewhere in the Mideast.

    I thought capital pun-ishment was when someone breaks your keyboard so you only type in all caps and then the internet hates you.

    Poor Greece…country of eleven million with lots of expensive real estate(yum) gets persuaded by skunks currently working for the IMF to PUT ON THE OLYMPICS…!!
    And by the time they “built, bought, borrowed” enough to do THAT…(try to remember, you dim dolt) they were ready for the
    banksters to kill the rest of their economy and TAKE their heirlooms of democracy’s beginnings…

    And it appears you’ve all bought it. Read up on LIBOR…they’ve screwed YOU too, and quite a bit.
    Of course you LOVE your Fox, currently explaining to the FBI about those phonehacks of democratic congressmen and blackmail…

    Guillotines, the REAL cleansing solution.

    The skunks in the IMF are Americans. We are the majority contributor to the IMF. It is the US of A traveling around manipulating country’s with IMF money,with promises, with threats.

    I guess deep down I am really a caveman!
