Wonderful Bird is the Pelican

Do you remember this limerick about a pelican?

A limerick penned in 1910 by Dixon Lanier Merritt (1879–1972)
A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!
