What degree would a pelican get in college? No, this is not a set-up for some terrible pelican pun, we're really trying to figure out what these pelicans were doing at Pepperdine University's graduation ceremony!
Apparently a Pelican bomb is to be expected when your university is right by the Pacific Ocean and your graduation is outside but damn, these people had no real way to handle this one!
Of course the crowd screamed, one guy with a nice camera instantly thought he was the next National Geographic photographer and officials tried to shoo and usher the pesky pelicans out.
Eventually, one pelican moved just off "stage" from where the graduates were walking so three men in suits formed a secret service circle around the bird to keep it away.
Just another lesson to not F with pelicans because they do what they want... Source: ABC 7 News
