And there it is
I guess they would tickle a bit.
Maybe they’re feathery hairs, ever think of that Mr. Apteryx sir?
this may be one of the first BC comics!
Always good to laugh at oneself. Keeps the ego in tune.
I remember reading this, when it first came out, in the Detroit Free Press, and trying to memorize ‘apteryx’.
think he may be lying…see how his bill grew in third panel?
We are all laughing as you go extinct.
Am I remembering wrong? I thought he was a flightless bird in some of the strips. I can’t find an example.
Apteryx had wings.
But do CLAMS have hairy feathers, besides their legs?
So? It has now been proven that many dinosaurs had feathers. But this strip is about 58 years old and the feathered dinosaur theory had yet to be proven at the time. We are having barbecued dinosaur for lunch today. We call it chicken.
B.C. started in 1958. I remember seeing this one when it was new, and laughing loudly. I had to look up ‘apteryx’ in the dictionary.
