My boss doesn't like the way I call everything "Rats with _________" i.e. squirrels are rats with furry tails, pigeons are rats with feathers...
...so every so often shel'll find info and/or video of clever critters.
I think this one is my favorite:
A seagull in Point pleasant Beach, NJ 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 Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, 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 New Jersey , and if that seagull starts to grab a 6-pack of 'Bud' to go along with the Doritos, I may have to put a stop to it.'
