    Just saw the new purge movie last night. The ending to this was not what I was expecting

    HAHAHA! Seagulls are now smarter than humans. They write letters and have an education system that focuses more on skills they actually need to learn to survive. Next they will have checking accounts and pay the stock markets..

    Haha I love this!! Putting a human military aspect to the seagulls was perfect. Now if we could educate the crows and ravens that eat those blasted pure berries in the same manner. :)

    The seagull military was formed in 1986 in response to the growing threat of Alka Seltzer being thrown out with McDonald’s fries.

    This made me chuckle! I love that the human is compensated though!
