In ACME's defense, every mishap the Coyote suffered was in fact user error. The devices performed as advertised, and were easy enough to build that a coyote could put them together properly. He just didn't use them very well and gave up after one try.

Ahem, Wiley is a member of disadvantaged group. The instructions and products in this case should accommodate those consumers that have no thumbs. May I bring your attention to a piece of legislation now before the Congress, in which thumbless critters are afforded the same rights as all other members of society?

The inequalities and racist overtones will soon be addressed by passing new laws governing manufacturers and retailers. The phrase "He's all thumbs" will no longer be Politically Correct.

This just in: Upon receipt of a substantial contribution to our PAC an Executive Order has been signed exonerating Acme Co and exempting its subsidiaries from further judicial process.

The NAATC has vowed a protest when the weather gets better.
