One sincere year-end regret.

Your Say

I've always thought of Wile E. Coyote. "Super Genius on his business card, as the eternal cautionary tale of unintended consequences of "gosh, it looked good on paper" from idiot savants that just happen to have exceptional resources put at their disposal (ACME)
Never saw an episode where he somehow earned a means of exchange for those very rare (and therefore expensive) "tools". "Apparently, such folks were just "given" stuff by ACME because "somebody" pronounced themselves Super Genius.
Haven't such parables and allegories concerning human nature, and "organized" society been with us since folks shared big ideas" (ie)around the "community fire" at the darkness down time, when MOST were otherwise "idle", and demanding entertainment from "others"?

I always thought of Wile E. Coyote as a liberal because he had so much free stuff. Someone pointed out that it was the Roadrunner that was the liberal because he didn't work.

Not true as I found out. Wile is the liberal; none of his stuff works. It always boomerangs back which is real life.

Teach your grandchildren well.

Wile was definitely LIEberal, he thought in the moment, and not much depth. His only problem was he had no safety net to save him from his own devices.

How much easier to just go buy a $2 sandwich than waste millions in trying to capture a scrawny desert fowl. Perhaps instead of eating it he planned to pimp it out to his coyote friends for as long as possible to recoup his financial losses.

Wile E. wasn't a liberal because he hunts. Seriously guys, it's okay to jest laugh at his genius. :)
