"and charlie, don't ever mess with a jellyfish"
he had heard his entire childhood
"but it doesn't' look dangerous," he thought
"and i'm a big boy now"
"so maybe i'll just smell it for awhile"
"i can't believe one little peck can hurt me, right"
"whoa. you are one tough little blob aren't you"
"that first little peck would have been enough, but i have something to prove to all the other gulls watching me. so let's just get this over with. one more full beak peck just to prove how manly i am"
we have no idea if he was truly eating it or just pecking at it, but it was fun to watch. i did google it and gulls do sometimes eat jellyfish...even with fair warning from their parents.
