    • Lisa: Who is Wile E. Coyote?
      Matthew: A latter day Sisyphus.

      Wile E. Coyote is the obsessive nemesis of the Roadrunner in the Loonie Tune cartoons directed by Chuck Jones. Although determined in his pursuit of the bird, Wile E. is doomed to failure within inches of acheiving his goal, despite his own genius. Sisyphus is a character from classical Greek mythology. The crafty king incurred the anger of the gods and was tormented in the afterlife. Given of the task of rolling a huge boulder to a mountain's summit, Sisyphus would labour mightily only to eternally see the boulder roll back down the slope before reaching the top. He has ever after stood as figure representing someone trapped in a punishing task with no end.
