In the animation ''Free birds'' two turkeys are going to use a time machine traveling to past. One of them sits on a chair available in the machine, then a recorded voice starts saying: ''Engaging posterior restraint system. Setting, supple.

What does ''posterior restraint'' mean?

    How does the seat restrain or secure the turkey? By holding his tail feathers? By suction? With a seat belt? Please give us some sort of an explanation with a question like this. Turkeys in time machines are not part of a normal English speaker's life experience.
