An ostrich ate my lunch
A: You accept defeat fairly graciously, retreat to a safe distance, and watch as the bread roll slowly moves down the ostrich's throat (see pic).
The ostrich in question had apparently been brought up from a chick in the compound run by the UN's World Food Programme in Gode in Ethiopia's Somali region. If you are ever passing through, it is definitely the best place to stay in town - unless your contacts are strong enough to get you into the US military compound next door.
