So it turns out that in Nambour, Queensland, there lives a wild emu who the locals have nicknamed Fluffy. Fluffy is very friendly. Some might say… too friendly.
Fluffy’s flirtatiousness has been well-documented, but perhaps never so thoroughly or so entertainingly as in this particular video, of cyclist Charlotte Benjamin getting – well, basically felt up by what appears to be a very horny emu.
Poor Charlotte understandably stays perfectly still while the feathery perve rubs itself all over her. Heard of #MeToo, you fuzzy bastard?
“What do I do?!?”
This emu just wanted to be pals with a Queensland cyclist, who has since learned the emu is known in the area for being super-friendly. https://t.co/HE0vry9VCG pic.twitter.com/YNG59Yp1Yj

Shout out to the videographer, who answers Charlotte’s reasonable question of “what do I do” with the very helpful response of “I dunno”. Good job mate.
Online punters have praised the cyclist for staying still and calm, ‘cos apparently emu, ridiculous-looking fluffy dickheads that they might be, can actually be kinda dangerous.
She did right though. Those things can rip you to shreds

Hard to imagine something that runs exactly like a muppet could be dangerous, but there you go.
This is quite emusing 😂
The organisers of Nambour Parkrun were busy setting up the day’s track on Saturday when they were joined for the walk by a curious emu.
They gave it the nickname ‘Fluffy’.

Bushwalkers and cyclists of Nambour, take heed: there lurks in the rainforest a feathery sex pest named Fluffy, and the price you may have to pay to walk these tracks is getting all loved up on by that big, dumb bird. Hard to say no to an emu. You’ve been warned.
