In the 1930s, Western Australia had a problem – an overabundance of emus (although if you ask me, there’s no such thing as too many emus). The solution: send in a bunch of soldiers with machine guns to cut down the emu population. That’s weird enough as it is, but the story gets even stranger/better, because while many birds were killed, the emu population continued to thrive. It was dubbed “The Emu War” by the media, and in the end, the emus won. Now, two people who you probably never expected to see working together – John Cleese and Rob Schneider – are teaming up to make a Great Emu War movie.
