Ostrich on the loose captivates internet, trends as netizens share jokes about it

An ostrich was spotted running amok in a private subdivision in Quezon City on Tuesday morning, quickly tickling netizens into life. 

They simply had to share their own amazement over the event, throwing out their own hilarious jokes along the way and making "ostrich" the number one trending topic on Philippine Twitter Tuesday afternoon with 20,000 tweets as of writing.

Sharing the running ostrich video, Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado said, "Me pag nandyan na mga bayarin."



In Youscooper Gorgeous Umipig's Facebook video, the subdivision guard could be heard telling the ostrich, "Wala kang gate pass! Di ka pwedeng lumabas!" 

Another netizen edited the video of the running ostrich with Red Velvet's "Zoo" playing in the background.



But plenty referenced the film "Jumanji" where a supernatural board game unleashes elements of the jungle into the real world







According to Youscooper Umipig, there were actually two ostriches running along this morning. Only one was captured, thanks to a team effort by a security guard, a construction worker, and a number of residents. The other continue to roam freely.
