The Joy of Wile E. Coyote

One of my greatest joys as a kid was watching Saturday Morning Cartoons. Saturday morning was the only day of the week that I would actually get up early, sometimes even before the sun was up. I never wanted to miss a minute of all of my favorite cartoon characters.

Probably my favorite cartoon of all of them was Road Runner. Truly one of the funniest cartoons ever created. I believe that the people who created that cartoon were geniuses.

Somebody emailed this to me not long ago and it made me laugh. I thought I would share it with you to just maybe bring a little joy to your day!

Did you know that there are actual Rules of Conflict for Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner? Neither did I. These come to us courtesy of The Wile E. Coyote Fan Club:

Rules of Conflict for Wile E. Coyote & Road Runner

Rule 1: The Road Runner cannot harm the Coyote except by going “Beep-Beep!”

Rule 2: No outside force can harm the Coyote – only his own ineptitude or the failure of Acme products.

Rule 3: The Coyote could stop anytime – if he were not a fanatic. (“A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim.” – George Santayana)

Rule 4: No dialogue ever, except “Beep-Beep!”

Rule 5: The Road Runner must stay on the road. (i.e. the name Road Runner)

Rule 6: All action must be confined to the southwest American desert. (natural environment of the two characters)

Rule 7: All materials, tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from the ACME Corporation.

Rule 8: Whenever possible, make gravity the Coyote’s greatest enemy.

Rule 9: The Coyote is always more humiliated than harmed by his failures.

Rule 10: The audience’s sympathy must remain with the Coyote.

Have a Great Day!
