Dating the Ostrich From Joust

Super Natural Dating Tips by Cristy Joy

Bird bird bird, the bird is the word! This month’s focus is on Ostrich from Joust.
You may think this fine feathered friend only cares about survival, killing pterodactyls, & getting eggs, but BOY ARE YOU WRONG! That’s just the DAY JOB, buddy! Relax!

This bird knows how to GET DOWN just like the rest of them, and perhaps even better! Unlike it’s relatives, this Ostrich can fly —and IS fly, too!

They LOVE getting down and funky.

The secret to their heart is some awesome music!
They are SO PROUD of their awesome dancing skills, it’s the quickest & easiest way to WIN THEIR HEARTS FOREVER!

Just put any classic dance tune on the jukebox and watch them go!
If you really want to impress them on your first date, just mention you heard something about them doing a perfect moonwalk. Your dirty bird will be so flattered, they’ll bust out their hidden stereo with Michael Jackson playing, and will just DANCE DANCE DANCE!

Yes, I just said hidden stereo!
These funky birds ALWAYS carry one because they LOVE dancing!
Bring your best dance moves, and you’ll instantly two-step right into their heart!
If you’re partnering with them and hit a snag, just switch sides! It’s guaranteed to work!

After dancing your way into their hearts, seal the deal with their favorite 80’s movie Cocktail. Just make sure you only play the part where Tom Cruise is sliding during the Risky Business song. Then, just mention you heard something about them doing a perfect Risky Business slide, and BAM! Otrich love forever!
