Wile E. Coyote needs a hobby-and the number of a good pizza parlor!
21 August 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

The life of a predator isn't what it's cracked up to be! He must be up to his eyeballs in debt to Acme (or has a sizable source of funds), his medical bills equally large and for what? A singular lack of success in catching one bird! I say give up, get a pizza and take up stamp collecting. Great fun and worth watching. Recommended.
