Hooting Yard: Charging Ostrich of Fire.

Against this, one could argue two things. If the cage was constructed from flimsy materials, it might be that the burgeoning ostrich would simply cause the birdcage to fall to bits around it as it expanded in size from budgerigar or canary to full ostrichdom. Or, bear in mind that Blakeston specifically describes an ostrich of fire. Would not the enflamed and blazing bird burn the cage to cinders as it underwent its transformation?

    First, I stumbled upon a hilarious piece about a character doing the police in different voices. I couldn’t stop reading.

    But then the piece ended. One click led to another, and I landed on this brilliant podcast.

    My poor wife lost patience with me for cackling. Great stuff.
