It is thought that gullible might be derived from the verb gull, meaning "to swallow." This would be a funny coincidence as gullible describes an overly trusting person who tends to swallow the stories he hears whole. The related word, gull, can be used as a noun "don't be such a gull!" or as a verb "you can't gull me into believing that!"

If you are gullible, the joke is on you because you are easily fooled.

gullibility (n.)
1782, earlier cullibility (1728), probably from gull "dupe, sucker" + -ability.

gullible (adj.)
1821, apparently a back-formation from gullibility. Spelling gullable is attested from 1818.
