The MarkRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Only five of the words in the riddle-line below are common names (bird-types; subspecies) of gulls. The remaining one is a gull, too, but not a bird. Which one is the oddity?
Herring, California, Pigeon, Western, Iceland, Laughing
HintThink of another meaning for the word *gull* (noun), or *to gull* (verb). The title is a hint, also.
Another meaning for the word *gull* is to trick, or to fool, or to con. So one who is so tricked, fooled, or conned is also the *gull* (noun form). *Pigeon* is a slang-term also for one who is set up and tricked, fooled, or conned.
