I’ve been fighting a cough for a while now. I’m much better than I was a week ago, but still not really up for going out and pushing myself. So this past Saturday night, I took it easy and watched a movie.

I found the 1981 movie, “Caveman” starring Ringo Starr in the free section of pay-per-view, and sat down for some mind-numbing nostalgia. I had seen the movie decades ago, and also had vague feelings of liking it. My taste at that age wasn’t exactly “refined”, but I thought I’d see what I thought was funny when I was in my early teens.

I was pleased to see a cameo by the abominable snowman. The costume was totally funny, and the long forearms reminded me of the commercially available costume that those clowns from Georgia tried to pass off as a body in a freezer last year. (I do think that its intermembral index was a little exaggerated…)

Still, it made me smile. Particularly the last scene with the bigfoot in it. It makes me think of what a bigfoot might be feeling, which is always a good thing.

Here’s the best clip. Enjoy!
