Sam, You Missed the Boat

A few months ago, there was a news release about Sam, a Dorito stealing seagull. He helps himself to bags of Doritos from a party store. Customers continue to pay for them, enabling Sam to continue his life of crime.



Now where was he when a ship lost a cargo container carrying bags of Doritos and they washed ashore the Outer Banks of North Carolina?


And in other news:

Sunshine, the bearer of buttons, has struck again. She was kind enough to give me a "You Make Me Smile" award ... along with her latest button "Internet Entertainment without Porn". Thank you Sonia ... I'm wearing them right over there <---- along with the rest of the bling.

I might train a flock of these gulls. Get them to do my week's shopping.

Linda: as long as you want Doritos =)

Oh dear - has the Coast Guard done training for containment of Dorito spillage?

Joan said...

I didn't know about the Doritos. You know more about what's going on here in NC than I do.

Must have been a slow news day :o)

mary alice: I trust they have it under control... they brought in the big screens, recliners, and old football game tapes.

joan: I bet you're just waiting for the "Lays" to come ashore.

michael: eh, it's all old news anyway.

We were at the zoo, many years ago, and having lunch. My oldest was about 5 and was sitting in such a manner that he was holding his PB&J over his shoulder. A goose crept up behind him (a huge goose -- obviously a bully) and snatched his sandwich out of his hand.

It was sort of funny ... until the tears started.

I tell you these seagulls are getting bolder and bolder. They walk right up to you on the beach bold as brass, but to shoplift?!? Woo hoo!!
