Sam the shoplifting seagull

The BBC seem to be on a roll with stories like this of late. Last week I mentioned the man-eating badgers rampant in Iraq and today brings another classic in the form of a shoplifting seagull. Apparently “the bird walks into the RS McColl newsagents in Aberdeen when the door is open and makes off with spicy Doritos.” He goes back for the same ones every time, although I’m assuming placement has something to do with it. Doritos should use this in an advertising campaign. Granted, the seagull isn’t normally the type of bird to appear in adverts (I’m trying to think of ads with any) but this guy could make a breakthrough. The funniest quote in the article is from the shops owner who says:

He’s got it down to a fine art. He waits until there are no customers around and I’m standing behind the till, then he raids the place.

😆 More stories like this I say. Normal news is boring.

  1. Seagulls are scary too! There’s this one that always comes right up to the window beside me in work and starts banging and pecking at the window (probably largely because a colleague fed him biscuits and toblerone one day! >:()

    Seagulls are not scary, they are super cool intelligent animals. Maybe that’s is why some people fear them?
