It worked for Wile E. Coyote, so… why not?
I watched Looney Toons every chance I got when I was a kid. Hell, I have four hours worth on my DVR right now. (Some things never get old) Remember when the coyote would bend down a tree branch and wait for the road runner to run by? He would cut the rope, be launched into the air, and hilarity would ensue. Well, these kids apparently thought it sounded like a good idea. The launchee pretty much ends up like Wile E. at the end. The only difference is that Wile E. can peel himself off the ground like nothing happened. Probably not the case here. Darwinism at it’s finest.
