    Oh, so do I!

    I remember seeing a clip about a bird that stole change from a parking meter. I must see if I can hunt it up.

    Judging by the number of feathered pals he has (second video) I'm surprised that Sam The Seagull doesn't steal a family-sized bag of cheese Doritos!

    I just thought of something....if Britney Spears was to be reincarnated into an animal, she'd be Sam, wouldn't she? They obviously like the same food!

    You make an excellent point, Sojita.

    Whoever shot these clips should offer to sell them to Frito Lay, who makes Doritos brand snacks. I know because Mr. Pippin works for Canada's competitor to Frito Lay in the snack food business.

    I have a photo of my lovebird when he was a baby. He's perched on a take-out drink from a local restaurant that I left on the table that had Diet 7 Up in it. The name of the restaurant is clearly visible, and you just reminded me that maybe I should ask Harvey's if they want to buy the pic. It's a shame that our lovie wasn't sitting on a hamburger wrapper, because Harvey's is well-known in our area for their burgers rather than soft drinks.

    I tried to find the pic, but I can't remember my Webshots password. I'm such a dolt sometimes....when it's emailed to me, I'll post it for you.

    Thanks for reminding me about that, by the way, I'd forgotten all about trying to market Mott The Hoople to Harvey's!

    Oh, he does....I'd be tempted to fight him for that bag of cheese Doritos if they weren't the competition!

    Mr. Pippin works at Old Dutch Snack Foods, so I have to eat their version of cheese Doritos....

    That is damn funny. And the bird has to be fairly smart to consistantly do this while the owner isn't looking and takes the SAME chips everytime.
    Just a thought....but if the seagull wasn't so funny, don't you think that the shopkeeper who appears to be annoyed would move the chips to a less accessible place?

    The way the chips are placed in his store makes it almost easy for Sam to steal them, and it's great publicity for his store, too, now that I notice you've mentioned advertising.

    What kills me the most, I think, is the first video in which the bird actually hesitates a couple of times to 'case' the joint out.

    They ain't called 'bird brains' for nuthin', are they?

    Whenever I leave the apartment, or Mr Pippin does, the crows in the park next to our building caw loudly. They recognize us. They follow us for about five or six streets away cawing, knowing we are the saps who feed them.

    I was amazed by the way he checked the store out; he's a much better thief than I could ever be!
