How To Mark a Centenary

"There are only five real people in Hollywood. Everbody else is Mel Blanc." (Jack Benny)

It's the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Mel Blanc, who provided the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam, Pepe Le Pew, Marvin the Martian, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Liza Minnelli and dozens of other classic characters.

Bugs Bunny has been a hero of mine for a long, long time. So today I'll have to mark the occasion somehow. Could just sit and watch some cartoons, but I think that would be too easy (and I do have work to do, after all...)

Would it be too obvious to eat carrots and talk to myself in a stupid voice all day?

I do like Bugs Bunny. But I like Daffy Duck even more.
