Well, in fairness, you gave plenty of warning, Gabrielle.

hahaha – yes I did Martin! 🙂

Hmmm. I would have thought it was to pretend he was a chicken.
No squirrel – the emu holds the chicken in no esteem at all 🙂

Very emu sing.
I can do worse. From one of my books: What veg do you get when you cross a daisy field with a sheepdog? Collie flowers …

They are just the birds for comedy. They can do chicken jokes and Monty Pythonesque silly walks too.

hahaha – yes, a Pythonesque silly walk (they are the comedians of the bird world) – thanks Aletha 🙂
