Coyote (Famishus-Famishus)

My daughter really wanted to watch some Looney Tunes tonight, specifically some Road Runner cartoons. So I pulled out The Golden Collection Volume 2 and popped in the second disc which is just about all Road Runner including such classics as "Beep Beep", "Going! Going! Gosh!", "Guided Muscle" among others.

About half-way through, the thought struck me that the poor ol' coyote must be having a hell of a time these days what with even little things like model rocket engine sales being monitored by the DHS.

Here's a partial list of the items used by the coyote in the 7 Road Runner cartoons we watched that would be difficult, if not impossible, to order from ACME today:

1) 20+ Rifles
2) 30+ barrels of TNT
3) Untold Boxes of Nitro Glycerin
4) Dynamite Lasso
5) One (1) Bomb
6) Standard Rocket
7) Box of Dynamite
8) Hand Grenade (x2)
9) Dynamite Arrow (with Bow)
10) Rocket Sled (bonus "Eat at Joe's" fireworks display extra)

What's the world coming to when a coyote has to resort to his wits alone (plus the occasional anvil) to capture his next meal?
