    I heard one of those imitating a motorcycle when I was in Australia. I was looking around for the road, when my friend pointed out the bird. Very impressive.

    "That guy" that you speak of is Sir David F*cking Attenborough, the man who I most admire above all others in the world ever, including my da. Wash your bloody mouth out.

    I live in Austrlia and when I was 10 years old I went to the Victorian alps up to Mount Buffalo. I saw 3 lyrebirds there and sadly they didn`t make chainsaw noises. I remember seeing this on TV too.

    They must`ve shown that thing some Star Wars at some point, because I`ve never seen a more dead-on R2-D2 impression near to the start. C`mon, someone else must`ve noticed it too.
