6/10. Not too good this time.

I do think it was hilarious how this one ended: The Road Runner from China came up and "beep-beep"ed again, saying something in his native tongue. Then the characters on the screen rearranged themselves to spell out:
"The End*" "* - old Chinese proverb"

"Beep beep! You got 7 out of 10" "You've escaped, once again prolonging the eternal chase of life and death!" ---This time I got 4, 5, & 10 wrong.

After watching one Roadrunner/Coyote cartoon after another last year, with the regular gag of the freeze-frame of each character with a made-up scientific Latin name, I decided I had to learn the real species names (I meet coyotes frequently in my work and the occasional roadrunner, so I figured it was only the polite thing to do).

There is only one species of coyote, Canis latrans. This happens to be an anagram of "satanic snarl", a description I'm sure Wile E. would happily embrace. There are two species of roadrunners, but only the larger of the two, Geococcyx californianus, is found in the United States (the lesser roadrunner, Geococcyx velox) lives in South America and Mexico. Its name can be rearranged to "lexicons goof inaccuracy", but the real inaccuracy is to assume they go "hmeep! hmeep!"; in reality, the roadrunner is a type of cuckoo, and if they vocalize at all, it indeed sounds like a cuckoo clock.

They're also not the harmless victims Wile E would like to think. Just ask any rattlesnake, a preferred prey of the roadrunner, which is immune to their venom (the birds like to crack the snakes like a whip and bash their brains in on any convenient rock before eating them; lots of good lean meat on your average rattlesnake).

I got 3/10. I got #3, 6, and 10 right. I am probably the only who didn't see this episode of the Road Runner.
