I'm sorry I watched that.

This is not the best of the web cartoons.


I was so much older at the end of those two minutes.

"This rogue, Looney Tunes-inspired version of the film is at times crudely animated, but pretty inventive with the way it subverts expectations of this parody"
Yes.
No.

I didn't click the link. Can anyone who did tell me if the coyote's fur broke apart into an alley cat and several chinchillas?

You've got to admit he would've done a better job at hosting the Oscars though.

I expected this was going to be worthwhile, and in that sense, it's true that my expectations were completely subverted.

This makes the 1960s-1970s post-Chuck Jones/Friz Freleng Warner Brothers animation look like "Fantasia."

Okay, the Porky Pig joke at the end was much funnier than the rest of it.

I was hoping for Wile E. Coyote slowed down to 127 hours.

I regret that my watching that gave it one more hit. Ugh.

Ooooh! Somebody didn't use the model sheets

Yeah, usually when I see the title "$PopCultureThing in $Time", I expect a highly condensed version of some lengthy narrative thing: "The Star Wars Saga in three minutes," "Lost in 30 seconds" or something of the sort. Here I went in figuring that there could not be more than a few hours total of Wile E. Coyote cartoons, something fascinating was in the offing.

Not really.

Spoiler alert if you watched the news at any time during the summer of 2003.

There is a discussion going on about whether it is not beh beh, in fact. I believe I read that it was spelled beh and sounded like meh. (or how was it again...)

ACME, always ACME.

You know, my local supermarket is Acme, and I have to say, they never seem to have any of their signature products. No exploding tennis balls, no earthquake pills, and I've never seen a single rocket powered item in stock. I've written several complaints to their customer service department about this disappointing stocking issue, but I've yet to get a response.

Try aisle E=MC². Otherwise known as the "Genius" aisle.

It's right of the "nuts" section.

Or canned goods....I forget.

There's a special on rocket-powered rollerskates this week. Buy one rocket--powered rollerskate, get the other one for FREE!!

I think customer service is an Instant Hole

This would pretty much be the resolution to that discussion

Thanks TwoWordReview, that was totally what I had been looking for. Written Meh becomes spoken Beh, in the alternative universe of this thread.
