MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- When Jeff Bursh, president of family-owned Acme Foundry, a Minneapolis manufacturer of gray and ductile iron castings, left the office Sunday around 5, the facade of the brick building was as it had been for years, but when he returned to work Monday morning, he found a fun surprise -- some unknown artist added an image of Wile E. Coyote chasing the Roadrunner to Acme's entrance.
"We get our fair share of graffiti, but this is the first time anyone's linked the company to Looney Tunes," business manager Monica Sweeney told UPI.
"We've been in business for over 100 years. I'm surprised it took this long."
The Warner Bros. characters are actually cardboard cutouts, affixed to the entrance with adhesive squares. Though the non-destructive graffiti won't hold up too long once bad weather comes, Acme plans to keep the cutouts up as long as they can.
"It's too humorous not too," Sweeney said.
"Though if the city were to ask us to remove it, we would," she added.
When asked to comment on whether it had something against cute, the city of Minneapolis did not reply.
