The pelican

Imagine if you can what glut
Can store more food in mouth than gut
Are you thinking pelican
Or eating contest staged by man

    love this..i once went to a hot dog eating contest... and boy could they gulp... Jon, the image also reminds me of the famous "Never give up frog cartoon" you know the one where the pelican is trying to gulp down a frog... good rhyme...pd

    Thank you pd. I'm not familiar with the "Never give up frog cartoon" I'll have to try to find it on u-tube.

    Wow, I did not know that. I do know that they sometimes put a whole bunch of food in their mouths to share with the female or their offspring. Not a eating contest, Jon. Their stomach can whole an unlimited amount :) Your pelican is a winner. Love ya, Toquyen
