    did you know emu chicks are extremely cute

    also it's not pronounced ee-moo. it's eem-yew

    I pronounce it as "lunch".
    ostrich is pretty yummy. I've never had emu.
    Speaking of large Australian birds, I had no clue that this thing called a cassowary existed until I visited Australia and saw signs warning not to approach them because they'll kill you just for fun.
    Everything in Australia is designed to kill anything else on the planet within 10 seconds. It's just the rule down there.
    Even the platypus is poisonous.

    I think OP is one of the oldest pics on the internet. Always loved that one. Always just automatically thought it was on ostrich but sort of interesting to know it's actually an emu.

    Either way, it's hilarious. Even after seeing it for so many years.

    Yeah, I know birds evolved from dinosaurs.

    But the cassowary probably came about when the velociraptors were like "you know, I don't think I like where this whole evolution thing is headed. Being a velociraptor is pretty sweet, so let's just go ahead and stop"

    Particularly if you get a look at their brutal toe claw designed to murder humans

    Holy. Shit.

    I for one welcome our new Emu overlords.

    Maybe it's an ostrich mimicking an emu?

    The way to tell the difference between an ostrich and an emu for certain is that one bird has three toes while the other has two.

    From the pic in the OP, you can see that the bird has two toes by the reflection in its eyes.

    Don't call a cassowary an emu, at least in hearing; it'll kill you for that.

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    Of course it's an emu. It says it right there in the file name. And you can trust files names. I have it on good authority from someone on the internet.

    It seems all we needed was

    a bird's eye view.

    Well, being that this is an ostrich...

    ... the bird in the OP must clearly be an emu.
    Speaking of large Australian birds, I had no clue that this thing called a cassowary existed until I visited Australia and saw signs warning not to approach them because they'll kill you just for fun.

    A cassowary stole my sandwich once when I was younger... I was pretty upset at the time, but in hindsight I got off pretty easy.
