Nibbles the Bulimic Manatee

ManateeHe looked over at the predictably repulsive bucket of chum the keeper was bringing toward the water’s edge and felt the thick bile raising in the back of his throat.  It was all that was left after the epic purge today at noon, when he finally figured out just the right angle to swim over his plastic coral reef as to hit his belly and force an involuntary reaction to expel the food from his stomach.  Despite this victory, Nibbles was discouraged.  It took a lot of energy to perform the maneuver and they were sure to take the reef away after he did it a few more times, forcing him to figure out another method of remaining svelte.  It was times like these that he really wished he had fingers.
