Don’t you mean bird-like dinosaur?

And all this time I thought birds were therapods…

The secretary bird can also type 6 wpm

And if you get enough of them together in one room, a retyping of Hamlet will eventually result.

These days, the preferred title is “Administrative Professional Bird”.

Whenever I see one of these I feel like it belongs in a Harry Potter movie.

It was the best of times, it was the BLURST of times!!!


#10

I wonder if it’s related to Honey Badger?


#11

Maybe. But this thing looks like it actually gives a shit.

That would be the cassowary, the nearest thing to the Terror birds of the Cenozoic.



#13

Holy damn. That’s a beautiful creature, in many senses of the word.


#14

you call that a snake?


#15

Hah, that poor bird. “WHY WON’T YOU DIEEEEEE?!?”


#16

At first I was thinking, dang, that’s harsh to the snake… did feel a bit silly when I realized it was a rubber snake.

Tap dancers hate snakes!

And that’s a captive bird, which probably has less muscle mass than a wild, free-roaming one. Imagine the kick one of these at full strength can deliver!

Also known (in my head) as Murder Bird.
