"Clams got legs!" (and it looks like they finally did kill the guy who let out their secret)

Posted by: Jambo / 12:57 AM

There was a time when "B.C." wasn't a rabid conservative screed. I even remember B.C., Thor, and the gang doing a VISTA (Volunteers in service to America) commercial on TV. ("Don't crawl under a rock.") And I know it's hard for you kids to believe but there was also a time when it was a fairly funny strip.

But that was before Johnny Hart turned into a right wing born again Christian bigot. The obits I saw gave scant mention to his two most ignoble moments, the infamous Easter strip snuffing out the menorah and this one form 2003:

The "slam" is in a vertical white space made to look like an "I". I SLAM. Get it? Then add the crescent on the outhouse. Islam stinks. Very nice Johnny. Well good riddance. Or at least it would be if we couldn't look forward to years of cashing in by money grubbing offspring putting out a bastardized version of the strip. I foolishly thought we would be rid of that waste of ink "Denise the Menace" with the passing of the unfunny, yet inoffensive, Hank Ketcham, but have been sadly disappointed. I can only expect that we will no more be able to drive a stake, even with the strength of Grog, into the heart of this steaming pile of crap. You want to keep the coins spilling into the Hart family coffers for another decade or so? Fine, rerun the strips from the 60s and early 70s when it didn't suck.



But I like B.C. and you are just a mean jerk! Clams Got Legs!

2 moons..? Islam does not have 2 moons..but hey have you! a mean jerk!
