They run much slower while they are laying eggs though. It's always best to sneak up behind them and yell. That way, they get scared and lay the eggs fast.
Don't buy that garbage about them kicking you. In all the times I've suggested to strangers that they do stuff like that never once have they found me afterwards.

If you use big cups the ostrich is a great final load.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Why do my posts always go off in some daft direction?

There is a TV show here in the UK called "The Weakest Link", it a quiz show where people have to answer general knowledge questions. A while ago one of the contestants was asked, "What speed does a charging elephant run at? Is it 20 mph, 40 mph or 120 mph?"
The contestant said the answer was 120 mph. We had this on at work during our break and the whole place fell about laughing. Everyone thought we should forget about horse racing and use elephants. How would the jockeys stay on? Can you imagine The Derby or The Grand National?
How good would it all be?

See, I'm doing it now and it's all thanks to Bill Palmer!

Some people are just gifted. BTW, I think Anne Robinson is hot. She seems to be like Marian the librarian, but smoldering under the surface.

She has a very wry sense of humor.

Like the two guys walking in the woods, when all of a sudden a huge grizzly appears and starts chasing them. One guy stops and gets a set of trainers from his rucksack and puts them on. His friend says "Are you crazy, we're never gonna outrun that Grizzly". The other guy has his trainers on, starts running - and shouts back at his pal "I don't need to run faster than the Grizzly, I just need to run faster than you".

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

Two female ostriches out on the Sahara... one spots a dustcloud off in the distance... it is moving toward them.

One ostrich says, "We better get out of here, I think it's those two guys that were chasing us before."

The start running as fast as they can (about 60mph) but the males are closing in on them...

The two females stop suddenly, BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND...

Just then the two males catch up and stop just behind them.

One of the males turns to the other and says, "Where did they go?"

(This is one of my favorite all time jokes) Smile

A man walks into a bar with an ostrich behind him. The bartender asks for his order, and the man says, "I'll have a beer," and turns to the ostrich saying, "What's yours?"

"I'll have a beer, too," says the ostrich.

The bartender pours the beers and says, "That's $2.80 please." The guy reaches into his pocket, pulls out exact change and pays.

Next day, man and ostrich arrive, order beers and the man again pulls exact change and pays. This becomes a routine until one night they enter again and the bartender asks, "The usual?"

"This time, make it a large Scotch..." says the man.
"Same for me," says the ostrich.
"That's $5.20," says the bartender.

Once again, the man pulls exact change out of his pocket and places it on the bar. The bartender is very curious: "Sir, how do you manage to always have the exact change?"

"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic, and I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount of money will always be there."

"Brilliant!" says the bartender. "Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!

"That's right! Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man.

The bartender asks, "Another thing: what's with the ostrich?"

The man replies, "My second wish was for a chick with long legs."

An interesting excerpt re: Final Loads I've just come across in some research:

OUT OF MY PROFONDE
By ARTHUR LEROY

"Saturday after Saturday the tragical,
comical, magical parade went on.
Pop Krieger would drop in and tantalize
us all with his cups and balls.
One day he paralyzed the group by
finishing the routine by loading red
hot boiled potatoes under the cups.
They were so hot we couldn't pick
them up."

-todd
