What Are You Doing with That Seagull, Blake Lively?

...and what happened to your feet?

Last night, Blake Lively posted an Instagram of herself holding a live seagull, sporting pretty destroyed feet (Blake, not the seagull...we actually have no idea where the seagull's feet even are in the photo). It is a puzzler of a post that raises so many questions:

…though Blake's caption kindly eliminates one option.

So what in the world is Blake actually doing? Some possibilities:

1) Pulling a Shia LaBeouf and doing a performance art piece (opens in new tab).

2) Recovering from the world's worst pedicure.

3) Trying to remember where the other half of her leggings are.

4) Practicing telepathy.

5) Learning how to do the "eagle-eye," aka the new "duck face." (opens in new tab)

6) Auditioning to be Ariel in the Disney live-action remake (opens in new tab)

7) Spending a quiet moment with a friend after wading through zombie guts.

8) Capturing/interrogating the seagull who invaded her trailer.

9) Attempting to one-up her husband Ryan Reynolds, who's a weird social media wizard (opens in new tab).

10) Trying to decide if that seagull's wearing a toupée.

11) Making a new friend for Thanksgiving. 'Tis the season!

Blake and/or your seagull, please let us know.
