Chuck Jones Quote of the Day: Unbelievable Speed

roadrunner is an authentic bird of the cuckoo family and is found in
New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California.  He cannot truly fly but he
runs at an unbelievable speed and soars to the tops of the giant
cactus.  He is about the same size as a scrawny turkey.  Yes, you will
find the roadrunner listed in any good dictionary of the English
language, accompanied by his Latin nameā€”his real Latin name, you
understand, not those which we invent such as Tidbitius Velocitus or TastyiusFastius."
