|An existential desert back-drop as Coyote ponders next move|
|Did you ever see such running shoes?|
|Glue on the road only worked if it was a truck|
|Another ridiculous contraption doomed to failure|
The Road Runner constantly rises above the Coyote’s efforts with a silly pointing of the tongue, but with dignity. He silently berates the audience as well as the Road Runner for their ineffectuality and inability to grasp his superior nature and ability. Does the Road Runner have any feelings for the Coyote? We will never know, but I think it’s certainly possible - it’s the romantic in me.
|Dynamite was often the funniest|
The Road Runner and Coyote also remind me of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Their love for each other will never be consummated; they don’t die but are both virgins and will never end up caring for anyone else. They still exist in our minds after the story has been told over and over again, like a folk tale a Serbian peasant might once have told his children at bedtime.
