Why take off when you can taxi like the roadrunner? He's the fastest run in the West, but the collared lizard's got the drop on him - dropped his tail to save his neck. More comical than a caricature of himself, the lizard lovin' roadrunner is a regular cactus-country cutup, a zany zygodactyl, and a desert dragster, a kooky cuckoo clocked at 15mph. The lizard? His throwaway tail will soon grow back, different maybe, but better'n no tail t'all.
