Bird Steals Doritos – Makes Frito-Lay Happy

Hey y’all. I’m heading out on vacation in a few minutes, so I won’t likely post much over the next week. With that in mind, I thought I’d leave you with a story that must make the Frito-Lay people very happy.

Apparently, there is a seagull in Scotland who has acquired a taste for Doritos. It seems every day, Sam the Seagull – as the community calls him – stakes out a specific shop, waiting for the store manager to become preoccupied and then the bird walks in and grabs his favorite chips. (story continued below)

The store manager reportedly doesn’t mind Sam’s shoplifting because, “people are coming to watch Sam 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.”

And, funny it is! Some reports quote the store manager saying he even moved that specific brand of Doroitos, (Tangy Cheese) further down the row and Sam still went for that bag.

You know the Frito-Lay people have got to be thinking of a way they can leverage this for even greater publicity…maybe a tie-in on Colbert?
