"Fame is Fleeting..........." A funny lil Joke I wrote, Enjoy

(Click on pic to enlarge)

The Cave Artist!

Once upon a time ....say about 1100 BC, There was a tribe of great Hunters and Gatherers. They prided themselves on having the latest in Technology such as stone hued spears, wooden clubs and a cave Artist!
A Cave Artist?! Yes, a Cave Artist for this cave artist was no ordinary cave artist.....he was the tribes fore seer. He would paint on the cave walls the animals that the great hunters would go out and hunt that day for sustenance. He was hailed as the giver of life to his people.
Only knowing of his art and nothing beyond the cave. The cave artist Feeling so proud of his found fame thought he would bestow a great piece of art upon his people. So, he painted a great saber tooth tiger on the wall and with a smile, fell asleep that morning exhausted from his work, ................................................................ The surviving hunters returned that evening and clubbed the cave artist to death!

Damn Critics'
