The ‘Cavemen’ Crusade Continues: We Send Hair to ABC!

This afternoon, we made our usual call to ABC's media-relations department to ask when we would be treated to new adventures from our favorite Cro-Maggers on Cavemen. And as usual, we were rebuffed. "They completed their thirteen-episode order, and no decision's been made on when to start airing it again," ABC spokesman Jeff Fordis told us, and when we begged for any scrap of information, he said, "Sorry, we don't know anything else."

It was time to do our part for the Save Cavemen crusade. It was time to practice what we preached and to send an envelope full of hair to ABC president Steve McPherson. The hair was easy to obtain; that's what interns are for. We grabbed an envelope and invited a photographer to document this history-making act of network protest.

Don't let ABC shave prime time of your beloved Cavemen! Send your hair to Steve McPherson now!

Stuffing the envelope. Don't want any to escape before Steve McPherson opens it!

Alternate note text: "DON'T SHAVE THE CAVE"

Network presidents are busy. Neat handwriting helps them know that your envelope is worth their time!

Then it's off to the mailroom, and onward to victory!
