Well, yesterday it was a pizza-sized hole.
Today, it’s a miscue from another AJC writer, Phil Kloer.
I was looking at the movie review for Ice Age II and read this:
Scrat is the name of the adorable little prehistoric squirrel-thingie in the 2002 movie “Ice Age,” whose wordless, fruitless pursuit of a single acorn was that flick’s funniest running gag. As relentlessly inventive and doomed to failure as Road Runner [ed. emphasis], Scrat is practically Chaplinesque in the purity and futility of his quest.
Road Runner? Wasn’t that Wile E. Coyote? I could have sworn that was the critter getting repeatedly blown up, smashed, run over, etc. Alas, I believe we have another case of someone writing for a deadline without really reading it.
Speaking of the Coyote. I saw another spoof bumper sticker the other day. You are, I’m sure, familiar with the “W. The President” square black stickers. Then there is “F the President” which I find amusing. The new one was “W. The Coyote.” Very nice…
