Come on kid and throw me the damn fish. Don’t look at your mother for approval just toss me the treat she put  in  your  hand. Herring, anchovies, flounder, salmon I don’t care. I spent the last few centuries at sea and it was slim pickings I can tell you. I work hard for my food. Even Plesiosaurs’s  can fall on bad times you know.

Ok! Ok! I’ll clap my flippers for you ok? I’m starving here kid so give me a break. I’m almost  a skeleton right now can’t  you see.

I tell ya, I get no respect.

  8. He doesn’t even look like Rodney, although I’d pay to see Mr. Dangerfield clapping his paws for fish. Nicely done. 🙂 😉
