> CARTOON MISUNDERSTANDINGS | jeffrey calhoun

Coyote remembers Roadrunner got syphilis
after a night at the bar. He needs to catch the bird
and take it to a doctor. Roadrunner is an oaf
and mistakes Coyote for a cousin; the ostrich outruns
the horror that is incest. The two resemble
an ACME flamethrower, a self-barbecue,
as they find that canyon dust
is the secret to perpetual motion.
