On Log Windows MsgBox... "Play like an ostrich and bury your head in the sand", that is a myth....

 

Wikipedia source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostrich

 

Heading:

Behaviour and ecology

 

3rd paragraph:

 

When threatened, ostriches run away, but they can cause serious injury and death with kicks from their powerful legs.[12] Their legs can only kick forward.[31]Contrary to popular belief, ostriches do not bury their heads in sand to avoid danger.[32] This myth likely began with Pliny the Elder (AD 23–79), who wrote that ostriches "imagine, when they have thrust their head and neck into a bush, that the whole of their body is concealed."[33] This may have been a misunderstanding of their sticking their heads in the sand to swallow sand and pebbles,[34] or, as National Geographic suggests, of the defensive behavior of lying low, so that they may appear from a distance to have their head buried.[35]

 

Please change it :).
