  1. I don’t think any of the clubs look suitable for the intended purpose, which presumably is for the tongue-tied gentleman to acquire a wifelady who will continue to breathe for more than a second after their initial introduction. The clubs in the bag seem built to kill, with most designed to split open the skull and the one with the single nail to give a deep stab wound/ sever the jugular/ put out an eye. I think the best incel dating strategy sites of the time would have advised using a plain, smooth club with a soft goatskin cover so as to render the intended beloved unconscious long enough to initiate capture without leaving leaky cracks in the headbone.

  2. Do we even know these are cavepeople rather than just a couple wearing identically patterened swimsuits?

  3. billybob got it in one, though I admit the nitpicks everyone else mentions are valid. Still, I’m confident in that interpretation.

  4. For cave people, those are suspiciously cleanly-made outfits. To say nothing of the golf club bag. And usually when cavemen are depicted, they’ve got scruffy facial hair, they’re not clean-shaven.

    While I think Billybob is correct, the drawing raises a lot of questions.

  5. I think I get it, but it’s rather horrific. As narmitaj says, I believe it’s based on that cartoon idea of a caveman hitting a woman on the head with a club and dragging her back to his cave by the hair.

    In this case, the caveman’s clubs are stored and selected like golf clubs.

  6. If they’re supposed to be cave people, why are they wearing a bikini and swim trunks? Are they suggesting that MODERN men hit women over the head with clubs?

    Freud would tell you that the clubs are substitutes: clubs, cars, it’s all the same; in the end, the bigger the club, the smaller the…

  9. So, cave people wore 1960s leopard print beachwear, and cave guys carried around maces and other medievel weaponry?
    Good thing he didn’t try drawing a desert island cartoon; it would have been two people dressed in armor, in the middle of a forest.

  10. Given his selection of clubs, it appears that he does this regularly, as opposed to the typical caveman who clubs one woman and marries her for life. But again, those clubs are lethal so he has to keep finding new women. Necrophilia in caveman times? I suppose it’s possible.

    I’m afraid the there are some (all too many) who would do so if they could get away with it. Some of same even become Important People.
