we got the bird

Living in Kansas is not without its amusements. Recently, an emu named Charley made national news after he escaped his compound, went on a bit of a walkabout, and was finally captured by the local constabulary.

One of the local television newsreaders led the story off with this statement:
"Charley the emu was just looking for a little love. Instead, he got captured, thrown to the ground, and tied up."

Hmm. Some people would qualify that as a "mission accomplished" rather than as an "instead."
