It falls somewhere between a Looney Tunes cartoon and real-life.

Two Edmonton parody Twitter accounts have pitted a pesky, precocious magpie against a sly and sarcastic coyote, resembling a Wile E. Coyote versus Road Runner cartoon come to life.

Although he's yet to resort to dynamite sabotage tactics, @yegcoyote has been taunting @yegmagpie about pretty much everything under the sun for quite some time now, including the bird's lack of hands, and the exchanges between the two are absolutely hilarious.

When the two animals aren't at each other's pretend necks, they're both keeping Edmontonians entertained with their smart, sarcastic and Alberta-centric humour.

@yegmagpie, or Magnus E. Magpie as he is more formally known, tweeted extensively about the recent municipal elections, and even gave an interview to Thelocalgood.com about his intentions should he ever decide to run for mayor:

"Q. What are the top three things you’d prioritize once in office?

  • 1. Shiny things
  • 2. Doritos
  • 3. Public transit"

(Read the entire interview here.)
