Garbage Diet

Contents of a gull's stomach, found in the North Pacific Gyre, also known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This is the swirling mass of ocean where much of of our discarded plastic goes to NOT die. Amazingly, adult gulls will actually feed their babies these chunks of Dasani and Mountain Dew bottles until they croak.

A pretty fair methaphor for modern consumerism, come to think of it.
