The Birth of Romance, Death of Manhood

The Birth of Romance, Death of Manhood
With the caveman movie 10,000 B. C. opening in theaters today, we were reminded of this tragic scene from probably the best caveman movie ever made, Quest for Fire. Manhood died -- or was at least seriously injured and placed into intensive care -- exactly 80,008 years ago. So don't feel bad. If you're reading this, you never had a chance.
