🐥 Pelican Puke Disaster: Student Quits Amid Vomit-Soaked Chaos! 🤮

Well, well, well...looks like our zoology student bit off more than they could chew with this pelican-banding gig! 😅 After getting a face full of pelican puke, they noped out faster than you can say "bird barf"! 🤢 But was it the right call? 🤔 The professional seemed to think a little vomit never hurt anyone, but our student just couldn't stomach the thought of 10 more rounds of regurgitation roulette! 🙅‍♀️ Now the professor is peeved, and our poor protagonist is left wondering if they made the best choice. 😬 Let's see what the internet has to say about this smelly situation! 🤭
