@marcuskelson @SnarkyPlatypus The wombat’s name was Suzy. I can’t remember the emu’s name. But yes, emus are enormous arsehats.

via TweetDeck in reply to marcuskelson

@marcuskelson @SnarkyPlatypus True. I was helping a keeper in the Children’s Zoo ‘cos no kids about. We had to kick a wombat away too.

via TweetDeck in reply to marcuskelson

@SnarkyPlatypus @marcuskelson A fair argument. A zoo keeper and I were annoyed by an emu once while feeding wallabies so she slapped him.
