    This is a very Seinfeldian conversation...

    I watched maybe an episode and a half, so I wouldn't know.

    Showing your age (fortunately not with angst), UT. Back in Superman's heyday, phone booths were a lot more private. Glass, small amounts of it, at the top.

    Well, that's all well and good.

    And bonus to me for being too young to know and not being angsty about it.

    Don't feel bad, Shooter. I still think changing in any phone booth, even the old-timey ones, is a stupid idea. Use the can to do it.

    Actually, I believe a Coyote-Road Runner cartoon addresses this very topic (OK, not the chicken coop thing).

    Begins with Coyote chasing Road Runner, and the frame freezes. You see the shadow of a little kid standing up in the "theater" and asking the Coyote why he doesn't just kill any old bird, why he has to have the Road Runner.

    Wile E. then explains himself by extolling the delicious virtues of road runner meat and opening up a cookbook with all sorts of recipes, such as stuffed road runner with potatoes, "just like grandma used to make."

    Anyone else remember that cartoon?

    Does anyone else remember the classic story from years back in (I think) The New Yorker covering Wile E. Coyote's fictional lawsuit against Acme Corp. for all the crap he bought that didn't work?

    Wish I could find a link to that one...

    I'm pretty sure there was a cartoon that revealed Roadrunner actually owned stock in Acme. A lawsuit definitely was warranted

    Have you ever wondered if Adam and Eve had navels?

    Why there were never a bunch of little snot-nosed kids that looked like Gilligan, Skipper and Professor running around the island?

    I'm lucky to get two years out of a pair of $60 shoes, yet the Castaways wore the same pair of Vans for 15 years ...

    And how on Earth could the, uhm, Earth have gotten so populated when it was just Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and of course, after time, no Abel?

    Speaking of the Castaways, the Professor could make a radio out of two palm fronds and some sand, but couldn't fix the friggin' boat? Why is that?

    He was too busy trying to talk Mary Anne into letting him go ass-to-mouth.
