Some people just aren’t good at their jobs, are they? I’m sure you work with people that make you roll your eyes when they walk in the room, or who just can’t get their stuff together. They may even be nice folks – friendly and kind, but just sort of inept. It doesn’t make them bad people, just simply incompetent. But when these people keep making the same mistake over and over, you start to wonder, are they a little…mad?
There are a few pop culture characters that come spring to my mind when I think of hopelessly inept and more than a little crazy. One has an unhealthy obsession with birds and is seriously in need of speech therapy. The other is an inventive yet sadistic maniac who is continually chasing the same, elusive enemy, often with horrific and painful results. And then there’s The Hunter. Or would be hunter, for in all his years brandishing a shotgun and hat, I don’t believe he’s ever managed to nail his pray, regardless of what season it is.
So, in honour, of March Madness , I present to you, Sylvester The Cat, Wile. E. Coyote and Elmer Fudd.
That’s all, folks.
