"I invite you to realize that this program does nothing other than present us with a protagonist, a coyote, functioning within a system interestingly characterized as a malevolent Nature, a protagonist who endlessly, tirelessly, disastrously pursues a thing, a telos - the bird in the title role - a thing and goal far, far less valuable than the effort and resources the protagonist puts into his pursuit"

"The thing pursued - a skinny meatless bird - is far less valuable that the energy and attention and economic resources expended by the coyote on the process of pursuit."

"Why doesn't the coyote take the money he spends on bird costumes and catapults and radioactive road runner food pellets and explosive missiles and simply go eat Chinese food?"
