Based on the example in TFM for PL/PgSQL:
CREATE TABLE foo(foo_id SERIAL PRIMARY KEY, foo_text TEXT);
CREATE TABLE bar(bar_id SERIAL PRIMARY KEY, bar_text TEXT);
INSERT INTO foo(foo_text) VALUES ('a'),('b'),('c'),('d');
INSERT INTO bar(bar_text) VALUES ('e'),('f'),('g'),('h');
CREATE FUNCTION wtf(refcursor, refcursor)
RETURNS SETOF refcursor
OPEN $1 FOR SELECT * FROM foo;
RETURN NEXT $1;
OPEN $2 FOR SELECT * FROM bar;
RETURN NEXT $2;
SELECT * FROM wtf('a','b');
FETCH all FROM a;
FETCH all FROM b;
