***ATTENTION! The use of firearms is expressly forbidden on the Jurassic Putt miniature golf course. The dinosaurs aren't real, you idiot--and you're going to have to move your helicopter so the next group of players can come through!***
If you're a writer who is having a little trouble getting their story moving, here's a bit of a cheat sheet to help motivate you by the talented Tom Gauld..
- The road runner cannot harm the coyote except by going “beep-beep!”
- No outside force can harm the coyote - only his own ineptitude or the failure of the Acme products.
- The coyote could stop anytime - if he were not a fanatic. (Repeat: “A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim.” - George Santayana)
- No dialogue ever, except “beep-beep!”
- The road runner must stay on the road - otherwise, logically, he would not be called road runner.
- All action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters - the Southwest American desert.
- All materials, tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from the Acme Corporation.
- Whenever possible, make gravity the coyote’s greatest enemy.
- The coyote is always more humiliated than harmed by his failures.
