You lot take me to some weird places.
So I post a picture of a green beach rock, and next thing I know, Heliconia’s comparing it to an emu egg and RQ’s asking if emu eggs are green. So I got curious. And I looked. And day-yamn. They surely are.
Remarkable. The resemblance, as Heliconia said, is striking. Now I want an emu egg. Lots of emu ranches in Washington state, so perhaps, one day…
Of course, I resolved to post a picture of an emu egg for you, and then I couldn’t think of what I wanted for the Sunday Song, until I remembered emu eggs and wondered, are there emu songs? Lo and behold.
This first one’s quite funny. Lyrics are here if you find the Aussie accent difficult.
Aussie’s Old Man Emu
And then I found this bizarre and quite hilarious impromptu emu song:
And there were, of course, emus in the Dreamtime.
And, just in case things didn’t get weird enough for you already…
Ganga Giri – Thigarra Yugal (Emu Song) (Raising it Up)
I have no idea what that was about. Ganga describes himself as “a rhythmic didjeridu virtuoso.” I shan’t argue. And I’ll admit it’s strangely compelling. Much like the deep green of an emu’s egg. Sort of.
