Cartoon Logic

Jack's Shack asked some cartoon questions earlier this week (and also mentioned this blog later in the same post). Reminded me of a great article many years ago by Isaac Asimov, published in TV Guide, where he asked timeless cartoon logic questions like the following (not verbatim, can't find a copy of this article on-line):
When Wile E Coyote sets up a rock the size of a building to fall on the roadrunner, if it works, how will he get the rock off, and what will be left to eat?
There were some more funny examples. If I can find the original article - I may have a paper copy in the attic somewhere - I'll add to this post.

I don't think that I ever saw that article, but it sounds interesting.
