The seagulls Gertude and Heathcliff, and their good pelican friend Peter, are relaxing on what used to be a speed bump in the Walmart shopping center. This swath of ocean before them, devoid of life save for some hearty bacteria, has become a large dead zone. Looking across this black bay they can see groups travelling by boat to asses the catastrophe.

“What does this mean for us?” ask Gertude.

“The impact to us will be the thing most visible to the public. But it is not our deaths that they should be concerned about”, replied Heathcliff.






  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog.
    You have some really good posts and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love
    to write some articles for your blog in exchange for
    a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested.
    Thank you!


  2. Danny, Good story based on a serious matter with a little injection of humor. Well done. 🙂 I’m one of a vanishing breed who “does” remember Red Skelton and his flock flying over. Great comedy. XD



  3. For a minute I thought you were going to finish the title with “walked into a bar”!
    Do I detect from the last paragraph that you’re talking about rising sea levels? If so it appears that Heathcliffe is wiser than most humans.


Tell me your thoughts!
