In actuality seals (pinnipeds) and dogs (canines) are distant cousins to each other.

I had a friend in SE Alaska who was playing water fetch with his Labrador when a sea lion came from under the dog and bit its belly out. Not so cute.

“I’m still waiting for the first Freeper “seal pup” recipe.”

First, club one baby seal. Dress it out, careful not to damage the organs. Discard organs, or give to an Innuit.

Bone it out. Add vegetables, a bones out duck, stuffing, a boned out chicken and more vegetables. Tie it up, bake at 375 for 6 hours or until seal is tender.

Slice and serve with rosemary potatoes.

Sealducken. An eskimo thanksgiving.

“Mr. Great White says, ‘Oh good....Lunch!’”

...and Mr Seal observes the “prime directive” when swimming in wasters where the Great White is known to prowl; “Always swim w/a partner who is slower than you are.”
