A Seagull Walks Into A Convenience Store…


Edited Sunday: Apparently many browsers weren’t showing the video, so here is the YouTube version.

 

This has no bearing on anything we discuss here (except that it may be yet another reason to cut out processed foods from your diet or that when the world goes to pot, the seagulls will survive us all), but it’s a great laugh on a weekend!


This was sent to me by my sister, but I have no idea where it originated:


A seagull in Marinette , WI has developed the habit of stealing Doritos from a neighborhood convenience store.


The seagull waits until the Manager isn’t looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.


Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.


The seagull’s shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Marinette , WI , and helped himself to a bag of Doritos. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.


The Manager thinks it’s great because people are coming to watch the feathered thief make the daily grab and run, and that’s good for business, and especially since customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of Doritos because they think it’s so funny. However, the Manager did say, ‘This is Wisconsin , and if that seagull starts to grab a 6-pac to go along with the Doritos, I may have to put a stop to it.’”


I personally like the fact that the seagull shares it with the other birds… Even seagulls work on building community!
