The Corner

Looney Tunes Et Al

From a reader who feels very strongly about this. Please: I don’t have the room in my email box to start a debate over this:

Jonah,

Abominable Snowman??? A minor notable character who does not “own” this quote at all. This must be addressed because the Bugs Bunny episodes (two of them) to which you refer are from the much beloved Saint Bernard Character (ala “Rabbit tracks…. TRAIN tracks!”…WHAM… “HEY FELLAS I CAUGHT A TRAIN I DID!!!).

Now I assume that in the interest of journalistic integrity you will address this post haste because I know from your writings that you, like me, have gotten a fair amount of your undeniably truthful view of the world from the magnificent cogotations of various Lonney Toones (to which we owe Warner Brothers eternal adulation since a more poignant source of simple wisdom the world has not seen since Aristotle… or Ok… maybe there’s been a few other sources in between Ancient Greece and the mid 20th century Warner Brothers lot… but not many!!!).

Now then… since you have never managed to take note of any of my political comments, I am pretty insistent that this much more important subject matter inspires a response from you in The Corner.

PS I agree however, quite heartily with the spirit of the quote. I love this story that way too. I wish I could hug it and squeeze it and call it whatever. A rare media “Feel the Love” moment!

You Got a Low IQ, Fatso

When someone has irked you and you want to lash out at him, it is natural, apparently, to mock his looks. Donald Trump and Joe Biden have both exemplified this. Last summer, Trump was doing one of his rallies, and it was interrupted by protesters. The crowd started chanting “U.S.A.!” “U.S.A.!” of ... Read More
