Show Off

I imagine a giant Acme Instant Brick Wall (a la Wile E Coyote chasing the Roadrunner) just to the left of the frame, with the boarder going ~splat!~, flattening against said wall, and sliding down the wall into a heap on the ground.

He might possibly hold out a sign saying "ouch!" or "mother!" as he slides down.

It would serve him right for not looking in the direction he's going.

By the way, does anyone out there know why it is Wile E. Coyote is mute in Roadrunner cartoons, but quite verbose and erudite when he co-stars with Bugs Bunny?

"Are you in-genius?"

Trouble is, in this photo it *looks* as if he's traveling to the right (the direction he's facing).

Yes, I know. The only clue is the position of his feet.

Man, I'm so uncool. I don't even know how the position of his feet is a clue. (I suspect most people wouldn't. Unless I'm even more uncool than I think...)
