    You left out the best part about the ostrich: Ostrich farmers have to stay well away and out of sight when it is mating season, or else the ostrich will start doing its mating dance in front of them. Why? Because ostriches find humans more attractive than other ostriches. "Remember, no matter how ugly you may think you are, to an ostrich, you're the sexiest thing on two legs."

    Fun fact: some ostriches are more attracted to humans than other ostriches. Some will only do their mating display for male humans, while some will only do it for female humans.

    In France, when a man is caught poaching ostriches, we shave his head and make him to run through the fields. Once you have seen this, you are never quite the same.

      @Dan Joaquin
      I don’t get your joke. Only bald guys poach ostriches? Did they become bald because the ostrich pecked out their hair? Or are all the farmers bald, and if so, why? None of these guesses of mine sound like they come close to what your joke was about though - so please explain?

      I honestly couldn’t even make out what he was trying to say. I rewatched that part a good five times and was annoyed that there was no captions available for this video, so that wouldn’t help me figure out what he was saying either.

    I'd say that one of the funniest things I've found so far in my channel binge, would have to be his habit of switching between pronunciations of bird. Sometimes he clearly says bird, while other times it sounds more like berd. And while I know that is hard to hear the difference when in writing, simply listen back to the video paying attention to whenever he says bird/berd.

    4:05 if they lost flight independently why would we assume they are related at all? They could be from entirely different birds at the extinction event and it would be no different.

      @Beach Girl Yes. And like the Morgan Freeman episode I think we're owed both a Jerry and a David episode. This is why we should submit photos, footage and definitions of Jerrys and Davids.

      Jerry is a metaphor for all the Davids in Ze’s videos (my headcanon).
      Edit: Maybe David is a metaphor for Jerry.

    Imagine if we used gene editing technology to give ostriches the ability to fly. I think that might lead to the apocalypse. A cautionary tale indeed

    Could you imagine if Ostriches could fly? Like we'd just randomly see flocks of Ostriches flying over head. Man, that'd be terrifying and awesome!

      Turkeys can fly and they go up in the trees at night. Was on a bike path through the woods one morning and heard a noise up in trees. Looked up to see a turkey flying from one tree to another directly overhead about 35 feet up. Then I realized, there were about 15 other turkeys up in the branches that high all around me. It was a weird and oddly intimidating moment.

      Sandhill cranes are pretty damned big and they fly. They also make a lot of noise. Definitely Zefrank worthy.

    I saw this immediately after the ostrich mating dance video, in which the poorly made sock puppet filled with sausage was NOT censored. I was expecting to be double traumatized, I've never been so grateful for a censor in my life.

    You know, this video got me to google the elephant bird and I'm stuck thinking;
    Aw man, we could have had real life Chocobos if we didn't hunt these gys to extinction! Granted they'd be scary AF to deal with but so are Chocobos if you piss them off.

    My dad was once attacked by an ostrich at a zoo. It took his glasses by pokey pokey him and my dad, being terribly nearsighted without glasses frantically crawled into the fence to retrieve it. It was a whole scene.

    This is some of the funniest sh*t I have ever seen.
    I think the first one I saw was the octopus but I can’t stop watching, they’re getting better and better.
    Like a mini-doc with a sick sense of humor and completely random and strange sh*t too.
    And the presenter’s voice kind of reminds me of Morgan Freeman, but a Morgan Freeman who says “butthole” and “behbeh”.
