I can’t see the word acme without thinking of Acme Corporation, a fictional company that was featured in the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons. Acme Corporation was the seller of zany products.

If you didn’t grow up with The Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, you lived a deprived childhood. If you are an adult without young children at home and you still watch those cartoons for several hours every week, maybe it’s time you grew up. I’m just saying.

Having known Acme only as a cartoon-based company when I was a kid, I was surprised to later learn that acme is a real word.

Acme means the highest point or the point of perfection. Now you know. Maybe you already knew, but even if not, now you know.
