Truck I think, not train.

That does NOT work. I have tried it. No train will ever come out.

Did you use ACME brand paint?

Well, thank goodness they didn't euthanize it.  I know these are considered nuisance animals, but there was no reason to kill it. If you're worried about your small livestock get a couple of big dogs.

One of my coyote CSB.

Was walking to my car one night on an otherwise empty sidewalk. Hear a soft padding behind me. I turn around and see a coyote walking up the sidewalk. I stop and she walks straight past me, so close I could have bent down and touched her fur. I follow behind for a little while to my car. When I open the door and the light goes on and she turns, sits and stops to watch me.
As I'm ready to leave, I wind my window down and say 'Bye!'. She goes padding off as I drive away.
It wasnt the least bit scary. Her body language was entirely relaxed and she just seemed curious. Very pretty animal.

Well, kinda. It's also a Greek-root word ("akme") meaning "pinnacle" or "highest point", used in superlatives like "the acme of excellence", a phrase from the Giles 1910 translation of The Art of War (long before Roadrunner). More likely that definition is just a backronym, although maybe the Warner guys came up with it independently of the original word.

ACME, or any business name starting with "A", is also an old method for getting listed near the start of the Yellow Pages.

/should have painted two tunnels -- a train needs an exit from the parking ramp.

You give me any word and I'll show you the root of that word is Greek!

Chuck Jones of Roadrunner fame confirms the Greek derivation as well as it being chosen for showing up early in the phone directory listings.

Here's another hint.   Words going back more than a hundred years or so are almost never acronyms in their etymology.   None of the following are:  fark, posh, news, golf, tips, sh-t, cop, swag, spic, wop,

That poor little bugger looked terrified. No news if they dropped him off in a canyon.
