Today I came to the surprising realization that I root for the underdog...
Er...when it comes to one of my favorite forms of entertainment, that is.
You see, when watching Looney Toons this evening, I WANTED Sylvester to get that Tweety Bird. I mean, I feel for the poor feline. He can't catch a break.
Like when that old man, in a misguided act of charity, lifts Sylvester up over a fence and into a yard full of bulldogs. Poor guy didn't have a chance.
Not that I actually WANT to see him eat Tweety... oh no. I would just love him to catch the damn thing and scare the little smirk off his face so he'll stop teasing and taunting Sylvester.
Maybe it's because I'm a cat person...
But then again, I would love to see Wile E. Coyote catch the Roadrunner one day too. You see, Wile is not stupid. Far from it, in fact. He is able to concoct extensive plans and diagrams to achieve his goals. He is determined and hard-working.
But even with all that intellect and an obvious unlimited credit line with the Acme Corporation, he continually falls short of the prize.
So I would love to finally see him rewarded.
Maybe it's not that I'm a "Cat Person" OR a "Coyote Person".
Maybe I just don't like birds.
And maybe, just maybe I watch WAY too many cartoons...
