    Thumbs up Down time at work..

    Occasionally my co-workers and I get 20 minutes to chill and discuss mundane topics. One that came up today was the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote and the scientific names that flashed underneath them at the beginning of the cartoons.

    Yep, the roadrunner was great entertainment for kids. My favorite was Foghorn Leghorn. "Ah said, pay ATTENTION when I'm talkin' to ya boy!"

    I liked them all and Pepe Le Pew was a favorite too. Grandkids today prefer them over the new BS trying to represent cartoons. Thanks for posting that
