“When the cave people went to the cave bar and asked for a drink on the rocks, they meant it”

"On the rocks” (on ice) is usually not taken literally—except in some jokes.

The American television sitcom New Girl, the episode “What About Fred” that originally aired on January 12, 2016, included this line:

“When the cave people went to the cave bar, and they asked for a drink on the rocks, they actually meant it.”

“How does a caveman like his drink ??? On the rocks” was posted on Twitter by EPig on April 24, 2016. “How do cavemen drink their scotch? On the rocks...” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on May 22, 2020.
