How To Catch An Emu

1. This may be the best thing I’ve ever seen.

2. Who was the first person to try this technique, and how drunk were they?

3. What would the emus have done if he hadn’t stopped? I think we need a follow-up video.

  1. I just had a flashback to my eighth grade field trip to DC. My friend and I were in hysterics for like 2 hours because we thought the word emu was really funny.

    Most people thought we were weird.

    Emu # 1: “What the eff is that?”
    Emu # 2: “Let’s go check it out. Try to look nonchalant.”

    This one time, fifteen years ago, The Barnes and Noble I worked at booked a guy with a travelling animal show. Maybe he had a book out, I don’t remember. At any rate, animals, you know, for kids. He had a retrofitted ambulance with nooks and crannies for cages and whatnot, and had snakes, and a hedgehog, and maybe a sloth, and God knows what.

    He was travelling with a young emu, I think (can’t swear it wasn’t an ostrich, but I’m recalling emu), and he said “you know, we need a dark quiet place where we can stash this guy before I bring him out for the big finish”. Well, we had a broom/mop closet, which was the domain of the extremely creepy janitor/university math major dropout/ooky guy who I will here call Andy (because that was his name). He was very protective of his broom closet, and went all kinds of ranting and raving and hopping up and down when it was revealed that the large flightless bird had pooped all over it .


    • I’m guessing the Barnes & Noble training manual doesn’t have an “In The Event Of Emu Poop” section.

        No, this is very correct. I still work part time at that Barnes and Noble, and in a development that I cannot figure out, our break room now has a set of new….training photos? There’s a thing called “table touching” in the cafe, where employees are supposed to approach people and say “how’s it going”, “can I clear that plate/put away those books/magazines/make sure you aren’t stuffing textbooks into your backpack for you”. This training message is being delivered by doge meme photo’chops? Shiba Inu heads on Cafe and Customer bodies, captioned “such wipe”, “many sugar”?

        We believe that our store manager has no idea what this is, or why.

    There’s a whole other way of life Down Under that we’ll never understand.
