Has become a recent interest of mine, mainly because I think it would be wicked-cool to smuggle an ostrich into school. I’ve heard of students smuggling pigs, chicken, and goats into a school as a prank, but never an ostrich. I just want to see how people would react. And yes, my inner frat-boy (long suppressed) thinks it would be awesome to chase someone down while on one’s back.
I hear they’re also particularly ornery, and like to hiss and bite people. That’s just awesome. Of course, I’ve never had a good track record with beasts of burden. I had a llama charge me once, and give me the evil eye. I was going to jump in his pen and box him into unconsciousness for his impudence, but I didn’t want to be a bad role model for my little sister.
