Seagull's Shrink

It's July which means it is time for pioneer-themed gags.* The single-panel gag of a psychiatrist with a patient on a couch is one of the great cliches of cartooning. (Open any issue of the New Yorker and you've got better than even odds of finding one.) This is only the second time I've dipped into this particular well, but I'm sure it won't be the last.

*While the story of the seagulls and the crickets doesn't take place on the pioneer trail, it does happen smack dab in the middle of the migration West justifying its July inclusion in my mind.
