“Felt cute, might run in front of traffic later”

Emus. The only animal species to have won a war against humans (no, seriously) while somehow maintaining the intelligence of a walnut when it comes to concepts surrounding not veering into Australian traffic.

Many a traumatised motorist has dealt with these feathered chaos machines – dashing beside your car at almost 50km per hour before suddenly deciding the grass is greener on the other side of the road.

This illustration of mine is an ode to the Australian Emu. Probably not our stupidest bird, but by golly do they go hard for the title.
