So, this bird walks into a store...

(I received this as an email today.)

Watch! He s-l-o-w-l-y enters the store......and then he runnnnnnns........OUT!

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

The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn't looking (so a camera was installed), and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and becomes a feast, for other birds!

The seagull'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 seagull's stolen bags of chips,... because they think it's so funny!

You really have to appreciate a meal that garnishes itself.

Hmm, my kitties are wondering how they can get in on this action.. but they'd like take-out bird instead.

Hee! I had to watch a few times to figure out what was going on. Then I read the explanation. Sometimes I make things difficult for myself.

Doritos. Excellent choice.

If you look closely in the top right of the video it says "press" and there's a red button. In Britain we can press the red button on our handsets and see lines of seagulls MARCHING into to stores to raid the dorito section. Ha! Jealous, aren't you.
