It's the only proper way to joust.

Pffft.  Big deal.   Right this very second, there are thousands of people in this world "riding the ostrich".

I wonder where PETA stands on the issue.

Subtle marketing for the movie?

So far I've done two out of three.  Riding a big yard bird before eating him sounds like a good time.

I've done the first two, and admittedly have never ridden an ostrich, but I'm having a hard time imagining that it compares.

Alternatively, I think they nailed a guy in Australia for animal cruelty whilst drunk and hitching/attempting to hitch a ride on a free-range ostrich.

They could never have this in America.....because insurance. Still it would be great if business could have ostrich farms for meat. But again, probably not going to happen because they couldn't have concentration camp factory farms like they do for chickens.

There are ostrich farms all over the country.  Good luck finding any advertisments though.

Had emu stew once.  I proceeded to produce the foulest flatulence for the rest of that evening that I've ever encountered.

\ I was at a friends house in the country.
\\ There was no escape until morning.

Subby, I've jumped from an airplane. I've been in a bare-knuckled fight (lost). I've ridden a state-of-art Italian motorcycle at 170 mph and raw-dogged a questionable lady at 5am in downtown New Orleans.

But I will never ride an ostrich. That sh*t's just crazy.

Wow, lucky you didn't get a ticket. NOPD keeps an eye out for guys humping whores on wop crotch rockets.

On a track. I'm no squid. And I think it was technically 168 mph.

People who speed in public piss me off. It makes us all look bad.

/still not riding an ostrich

Be advised: if it was a "questionable lady" in downtown New Orleans, you may already have.

/depends on how many hurricanes you ingested

Same thing happened to me after eating wombat and kangaroo.  I was farting Tyrannosaurus breath.

Love those. The Beef & Elk ones are awesome.

Also..."bare-knuckled" street fight is a bit of a misnomer.

My order of fight operations is reason, followed by fleeing if possible. If not, I'm grabbing the nearest thing that can be used as a weapon.

"No-holds-barred" is rarely indicated prior to the first combatant getting dirty.

I had a similar experience when a British gal went reverse cowgirl on me.

You don't need to go to all those lengths for an adrenaline/endorphine rush. There's ways that are much safer and just as fun.

Just went to an Ostrich farm on the weekend, and they had some you could ride (for a fee)

so I'm getting a kick...

I hate that I only had one.

In Jurassic Park: Rampage edition (Sega) I remember one could make Grant ride a gallamimus (sp?).  It looked awful.

Riding an ostrich sounds just as awful.   The birds may look big, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't bother them  to carry a full-grown human.

I read that book as a kid and I really wanted to ride an ostrich.  Now?  Now I'm 50+, and I think I'll pass.

Search YouTube for videos of ostriches mating.  Stumbled on it once while looking for something else (now long forgotten). Freaking hilarious, compares only to giraffes mating.
