“Happier than a seagull with a french fry”

"Happier than a seagull with a french fry” (or “Happy as a seagull with a french fry") is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Happier than a bird with a french fry” (or “Happy as a bird with a french fry") has also been printed on many images. Birds/Seagulls supposedly love french fries; to be happier than that is to be very happy.

“Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry” was cited on a blog published on April 16, 2008, with this image. The saying probably derives from the image.

“I’m happier than a seagull with a french fry” was posted on Twitter by Janice Davidson on March 23, 2009. “im happy as a seagull with a french fry” was posted on Twitter by brittany on May 26, 2009.

The entire print says Be Happier than a Bird with a French Fry.  But isn’t that birdie the cutest?  Hmmm… but not too cute for a man to enjoy hanging on the wall, I hope?  smile

Best Answer: im guessing you meant
today will be happier than a bird with a french fry
and think thats talking about how a simple thing can make a bird happy, and at how birds will scavenge for food.
so maybe it means today i will be happier than something that has alot, and i will not need anything else
is it about conteptment?
