The First Meatloaf – History According to Roscoe

Which Came Second? Historians have long debated the Cave Man’s second meal, as it is universally agreed that the first was a salad, fruits and vegetables being easy to gather and eat raw, especially since fire hadn’t been invented yet to cook them. They didn’t even need a bowl, which was a good thing, because […]

The First Handyman (History According to Roscoe)

Cave Men Did Repairs You wouldn’t think a Cave Man had to fix much in the cave, but you’d be wrong. Even though the floors were dirt (Pergo hadn’t been invented yet), and the ceilings were made of rock (shingles were a long way off), they always had leaks. And since buckets hadn’t been invented […]

Another Cave Man Spring – More History According to Roscoe

And they crashed into each other and a lot of them got hurt (no pads, helmets, no astroturf), but […]

More Cave Man Christmas (History According to Roscoe)

Yes, Cave Men Celebrated Christmas Even though religion hadn’t been invented yet, the Cave Man knew instinctively that there had to be a higher power out there in the universe (though Cave Men didn’t know very much about the universe, only that there sure were a bunch of stars out there – smog hadn’t been […]

The Second Thanksgiving (History According to Roscoe)

Turkeys Got Smarter Roscoe’s chronicle of the first Thanksgiving gave us a lot of insight into the Cave Man and how he came to celebrate this wonderful holiday (even though holidays hadn’t been invented yet, Cave Men knew instinctively that they would be soon, and that each one would call for a dinner). There were […]
