He says there's a story about an ostrich at the London zoo, then describes it as a long neck chicken to Spike & says the ostrich had an odd habit of eating strange things. He mentions them such as an alarm clock, handkerchief, pencil, glove, roll of film, a roll of pennies & a 3 foot long piece of rope.
