The Diary of Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius

Dear Diary,
After all these years of trying to catch that darned Roadrunner (Accelleratii Incredibus), I, Wile E. Coyote (Overconfidentii Vulgaris), decided to take a little vacation to relieve my stress. I found a perfect place, West Texas {no cliffs}, and I just happened to have a cousin that lived there by the name of El Lobo (Hungrii Flea-Bagius). He lived in a town called Midland. So I went to see him. He told me about a college in town that was just for roadrunners, he called them Chaparrals, but I, being a Super Genius, knew that Chaparral is another name for roadrunner. I decided to try out the new roadrunner trap I found in the Spring ACME catalog. It was called the ACME Booter, here is a clip from the catalog:

Well, I finally got the plans in the mail (It took almost 4 and a half seconds!) and went to work building it. (I got the Texas Edition because I was in Texas) I really didn't want to just go up to the front entrance of this roadrunner college so I asked El Lobo. He told me about a back way in. So I went to the Midland Community Theater located on the north side of Wadley Drive between "A" Street and Garfield Street. At the back of the parking lot is a large drainage ditch with a metal bridge spanning across the ditch. The other side of the bridge is on the Midland College grounds and leads to the Dollye Neal Chapel. I set up the ACME Booter on the other side of the bridge. Things didn't work so well though. The Quick Release failed to release so I chased after the roadrunner that had stopped, when I got in front of the Booter, it released and kicked me into the pit. The roadrunner got away.

I have left you a copy of the plans for the ACME Booter, maybe you will have better luck. As you reach the far side of the bridge turn right and follow the flower beds around until you can get back to the underside of the bridge. There you will find this box attached by magnets to the steel beams holding up the bridge, just above the concrete support pad. Happy Hunting.

Your Truly,
Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius
