Mawg was huddled next to the fire in his cave, attaching a new stone head to his favorite spear. Just as he was putting the last few wraps of sinew on, his tribemate, and sometimes rival, Thag, came in to the cave and huddled up to the fire.
What Mawg do with spear? Where get pointy rock? asked Thag
Get rock from Ooglymoogly's across big river. They make. Mawg trade shiny pebbles from back of cave, get pointy rock for spear. Make spear better! Make mammoth die faster! boasted Mawg
Why you need make mammoth die faster? Hunt like man! said Thag as he thumped his forearm against his chest. Bash in head with rock! Me traditionalist!
Mawg then said Me no bash in head with rock anymore. Me have new pointy-rock spear now. Me kill more meat than Thag. Me get more girls.
Fuh! cried Thag Pointy-rock spear cheating! No give mammoth fair chance. Soon everyone in valley have pointy-rock spear and mammoth go away forever! Technology making hunt too easy!!!
