Story Summary

Bruh Buzzard alights on a rail next to Bruh Wren and claims he can fly higher than Bruh Wren, but Bruh Wren claims that's not so. When Bruh Buzzard spreads his huge wings ready to prove it, Bruh Wren jumps up and lays himself down on Bruh Buzzards back and fools Bruh Buzzard into thinking he's flying just as high as him.
