    So, let me get this straight...he does the sexy dance to get the girl ostrich, then while they’re boning, he’s still doing the sexy dance??? The hard work is done, my guy! Just enjoy yourself now. You should check out the video of the ostrich decapitating itself. They’re not the smartest animal.

    Ornithophobia is the fear of birds. While there is no term for the fear of only large birds, ornithophobia can manifest as a fear of all birds, specific types of birds, specific SIZES of birds, or birds of a certain color.

    "Just as a coda, one of the ostriches asked to read this. 'Dear viewer, ostriches don't stick their heads in the sand. If you keep saying that, I will stick my head in your butt.' You know, as I'm reading it, I feel like he might not have thought that all the way through. But at this point, I- I think it's between you and the bird. Don't kill the messenger." How did I miss this part? Well, I'm glad I found it anyway.

    I've heard that some ostriches are more attracted to humans, and the fact that they are giant murder birds with 8 inched penises makes it so one of the most terrifying things in the world would be a male ostrich doing a mating dance for you.
