RIP Johnny Hart

I just read the news that Johnny Hart, creator of "B.C." and "The Wizard of Id," passed away yesterday at the age of 76.
I remember having a bunch of B.C. paperbacks when I was a kid...when he was at the top of his game, it was one of the funniest comic strips around. I still have a bunch of punchlines floating around my head. ("Beat me to a pulp, baby!" "WHAM WHAM WHAM!" "So much for reverse psychology.")
Rather than dwell on how both Hart and the strip changed in later years, I'll just share one of the most famous strips from its entire run.
