    A fake tunnel? Was it one of those ones the coyote paints on a rock face with a sign pointing at it saying "BIRD SEED THIS WAY"?

    Wile E Coyote was Acme's only customer. That's why the company had such poor quality control, they for some reason banked all their hopes on a single hungry desert dog
    Acme was founded by the elon musk of its day.

    "Guys. Get this. We're gonna sell rockets to a dog."
    "we're going to sell rockets to dogs?"

    A dog, Greg. A dog out in the desert. We're gonna disrupt the tulip out of this market. Who's with me?!
    "But"

    No buts, you piece of tulip. I want a rocket-powered pair of rollerskates on my desk by three or you're fired.
    The team gingerly unveils a 10 ton anvil with a rocket crudely duct-taped to it.

    1940's elon musk giggles, continuously, for a solid 5 minutes.

    "Oh yes, boys, he's gonna love this. Ship it."
    A year later, Acme now consists of 1940's elon musk and three car mechanics from Brooklyn.

    They spend their time smoking pot and pondering about small dogs in the vast desert. Sometimes they mail a rocket to the middle of that desert.


    Meanwhile, Wile E Coyote, brain enhanced due to nuclear fallout from nearby atom bomb tests, thinks this is all completely normal. The poor dog has no idea his entire lifestyle is one man's deranged dream.
    Wile E Coyote, laboriously using a pen in his ungainly dog paws to scrawl a mail-order for a can of vantablack paint, thinking to himself how incredible capitalism is and how humans take it for granted.
    Meanwhile, at Acme:

    1940's elon musk: what if *takes a hit* we sell him painted tunnels.

    Vinnie: how do you paint tunnels?

    1940's elon musk: you jackass. He paints the tunnels. We just sell the paint. Unimaginably dark paint.
    Somewhere in the vast austere majesty of an eroded desert, there exists a small mutated dog whose entire concept of capitalism is the product of 1940's elon musk feverdreaming about rockets

    Tea this evening comprised some more of yesterday's chicken (cancer causing according to the Fail) and cumberland sausages (cancer causing according to the Fail).

    Followed by 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea (no comment on the cancer inducing effects of this in the Fail).

    The evening's first feature is "Die Hard (1988)" which is old enough that Bruce Willis still had hair.
