The gull and the pelican


 Gulliver Gull:  Hey, Patty Pelican, looks like that dive of yours landed you a fish!


I think I'll just drop in ...


And take a closer look at what you have there!


Come on!  Bring it up already!

 I can't ride these waves all day waiting for you to
come up with dinner!

 Oh, the hell with ya!

 I didn't want your darn fish anyway.
I'm outta here!



Patty Pelican:  GULP!  I thought that gull was never going to leave.  Trying to steal my fish... why the nerve!


My, that WAS a tasty morsel!
 

Better get moving to land me another meal
before that freeloading gull comes back!


Moral of the story:

He who lives off the back of others
has a lot of gull!

OH MY WORD the gull is surfing on the pelican's back and on top of that he is trying to steal the pelican's food. What a wonderful set of pictures and I'm truly amazed there wasn't more of a dispute.
