Animal biology in today's Sunday comics

Soooo is that how the dinosaurs became extinct? They just wandered off to the horizon one by one and spontaneously combusted, loudly disintegrating?

Or is the implication in this comic strip that the raptor is so ashamed of itself for being related to a B.C. character that it wandered off over the horizon and shot itself in the head? Because gun ownership among velociraptors brings up a lot of interesting questions that this strip doesn't even begin to address, although perhaps that is how the dinosaurs became extinct. Once velociraptors developed firearm technology, they were able to hunt all of the herbivores into an early extinction, and with nothing to feed on, the carnivores all died off.

I can't remember the last time B.C. made me laugh, but I'll be damned if it didn't make me think today.

Is that thing a zebra? Because zebras don't have hands.

No, it's a zeeba. Jeez.

Is this the first time they've shown a suicide in the sunday funnies? I mean how did that even get past the editors?

"B.C." is so terrible, even the editors can't bear to read it, so it gets run, sight unseen.
