“Elmer J. Fudd is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies series and the archenemy of Bugs Bunny. He has one of the more disputed origins in the Warner Bros. cartoon pantheon (second only to Bugs himself). But it was evidenced that the true origins of Elmer was that he was actually created by Fred "Tex" Avery in 1937, as a "Running Gag" character with small, sometimes squinty eyes, with a derby hat and with a green suit.' His aim is to hunt Bugs, but he usually ends up seriously injuring himself and other antagonizing characters. He speaks in an unusual way, replacing his Rs and Ls with Ws, so he often refers to Bugs Bunny as a "scwewy" or "wascawwy (rascally) wabbit". Elmer's signature catchphrase is, "Shhh. Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits", as well as his trademark laughter.
The best known Elmer Fudd cartoons include Chuck Jones' work What's Opera, Doc? (one of the few times Fudd bested Bugs, though he felt bad about it), the Rossini parody Rabbit of Seville, and the "Hunting Trilogy" of "Rabbit Season/Duck Season" shorts (Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning, and Duck! Rabbit, Duck!) with Fudd, Bugs Bunny, and Daffy Duck. An earlier prototype of character named Elmer set some of the recognizable Elmer's aspects before the character's more conspicuous features were set.”
Year of the Rabbit
“Athena kept a pet owl, but there is no record of what it was called, if anything. It is likely a patriotic mark by Athens to associate it's national bird to that of their goddess, as Athens was rich with owls. (A concept similar to The US's national paragon, Uncle Sam, often having a bald eagle on his shoulders).”
“Eurasian eagle-owl Flaco remains on the loose after escaping Central Park Zoo”
Year of the (R)abit
“That Wascally Wabbit
Bugs Bunny pop-up featured . . .
Bugs Bunny first debuted in cartoons in 1940.”
One year ago tomorrow the price closed at 4.68, 90% discount and one year further into crypto industry innovation. Can another country adopt Athena ATMs, can movie theaters or retail stores to bring attention to their companies for the holiday season in the US? Which country or company will be viewed as being at the forefront of modern innovation?
“Contracts with government of El Salvador
In the third quarter of 2021, the Company installed and began operating 200 white-labeled Bitcoin ATMs in El Salvador, 10 white- labeled Bitcoin ATMs at El Salvador consulates in the U.S., 45 white-labeled Bitcoin ATMs in other U.S. locations and sold 950 point- of-sale (POS) terminals for local businesses in El Salvador to process transactions with Bitcoin to Ministerio de Hacienda (Department of Treasury) of El Salvador (“GOES”). Additionally, we will also sell intellectual property in software, develop, and maintain a Bitcoin platform designed to support a GOES branded digital wallet. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, advances for revenue contracts of $3,500,000 presented in current liabilities, represents amounts invoiced for intellectual property in software pending transfer of control to GOES.
From time to time, the Company receives money from GOES to facilitate replenishment of cash in the ATMs that we provide and operate for them. As of June 30 2022 and December 31, 2021, the cash received as advances from GOES was $9,959,000 and $3,647,000 respectively, and was presented as part of Liability for cash held for customers on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet with a related Restricted cash held for customers recorded as current assets.”
Even though they had 29 bitcoins stolen from them (1.6 million) as per their Q2, they are still backed by a government banking system, the shareprice should increase to a more respectable price as it represents how El Salvador is perceived.

“"We've written a couple of times recently about wait and see trading ahead of key events/releases... and how that can set the stage for greater volatility around the events themselves, and we may see a bit of that play out next week as investors await the symposium," read a Friday note from Susquehanna's Christopher Jacobson.”
Seeing the words “a bit” used more often in articles lately, same thing occurred last August before the run up in SP.
