  1. Caveman

    A caveman or troglodyte is a stock character based upon widespread concepts of the way in which early prehistoric humans may have looked and behaved. The term caveman, sometimes used colloquially to refer to Neanderthal people, originates out of assumptions about the association between early humans and caves, most clearly demonstrated in cave painting or bench models. Cavemen are frequently represented as living with dinosaurs in popular culture, despite the fact dinosaurs became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period, some 65 million years before the emergence of the human species. One of the earliest portrayals of cavemen and dinosaurs together is D. W. Griffith's Brute Force, a silent film released in 1914, while more recent examples include the comic strip B.C. and the television series The Flintstones.

Examples of caveman in a Sentence

  1. Eldridge Cleaver:

    The white youth of today have begun to react to the fact that the American Way of Life is a fossil of history. What do they care if their old baldheaded and crew-cut elders don't dig their caveman mops? They couldn't care less about the old, stiff-assed honkies who don't like their new dances: Frog, Monkey, Jerk, Swim, Watusi. All they know is that it feels good to swing to way-out body-rhythms instead of dragging across the dance floor like zombies to the dead beat of mind-smothered Mickey Mouse music.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Interestingly, Paleo Diet is getting extremely popular nowadays. It's also known as: Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet and Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It's basically the diet that includes raw wild plants and animals eaten by human beings during the Paleolithic era (that ended 10,000 years ago.) It's an interesting dichotomy, imho, in light of the fact that most cavemen actually died as early as the age of 25. During that era, very few could make it anywhere close to the modern day life expectancy of 85 to 95 in many countries. There is absolutely no good alternative to balanced good diet, be it Paleo or otherwise, and most importantly, refraining from smoking and drinking excessively. Have a wonderful healthy life!
