seagull.gif A sea gull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.

The sea gull waits until the shopkeeper 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 sea gull’s shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

Customers have begun paying for the sea gull’s stolen bags of chips because they think it’s so funny.

MoK at Six Degrees of Blondness e-mailed this to me, and I felt compelled to share.
