Kids These Days

I overheard this conversation in a shop the other day:

A: My little brother is having an Emo party for his 20th.

B: what?

A: You know, it's like dress up for him and his friends. They're all going to dress up as Emos. But he invited a friend who lives interstate and this friend obviously misread the invitation because he sent my brother a text the other day saying "I'm having real trouble finding an Emu costume".

B: Oh no!

A: So my brother sent a text back saying "Don't worry too much, just wear some black stockings and make a beak out of cardboard"!!!

I'm reminded of a time I tried to burp at a field of emus, ready to drive away fast in case one of them tried to mate the car. In other observations, an Emu-themed party would give some interesting scope for left-of-centre dance moves. I feel that the neck would come into play, and there may also be some flapping of the arms. The real question is all about the playlist - what gets an emu on the floor?
