Jeremy Lewis is not an ostrich, nor has he ever been.

Sure, he may be gangly. And boy can he run like the dickens*. Yes, his grasp on the english language has been reduced to a series of bawks and shrieks. And it is true that he smells of old bird. But all this accounted for, Jeremy Lewis, is NOT an ostrich.

Thank you.

*Dickens is a euphemism, specifically a minced-oath, for the word devil, possibly via devilkins. Shakespeare used 'dickens' in 'the Merry Wives of Windsor, 1600: I cannot tell what the dickens his name is my husband had him of.
