Fast Food?

When Alfred Hitchcock filmed 'The Birds'
he never guessed just how absurd
this flock of hungry gulls would be;
they left the fishes in the sea
and smacked their noisy, beaky lips
as fingers offered chip-shop chips!

  1. Trying to get kids to eat fresh and local is always a challenge when junk food is available.

  4. I guess food on the beach is easier to catch than fish in the sea. I agree with your viewpoint though.

  5. Interesting phrase, "fingers offered chip-shop chips!" Just how many chips could a chip-shop chip if a chip-shop could shop chips? --It's Monday morning so you can't expect much. :-)
