The ostrich is a flightless bird from Africa, which suffers from the all-too-common Delicious gene. Although able to run extremely fast, they cannot run faster than a bullet. They are apocryphally notorious for being so mind-numbingly stupid they stick their heads in the sand when confronted by an attacker. Hence the bird has given its name to those who refuse to accept facts no matter how often they are presented to them, or how robustly they are authenticated - for example, Conservapedians. Especially ASchlafly, RSchlafly, RobS, Conservative and Karajou.
