This video has been around for a while, but I hadn’t seen it until a crappier version popped up on
The seagull, nicknamed Sam, has now become so popular that locals have started paying for his crisps. Shop assistant Sriaram Nagarajan said: “Everyone is amazed by the seagull. For some reason he only takes that one particular kind of crisps.”
“For some reason”? Uh, how about because the cheesy ones taste the best?
The best part of the video — aside from the sexy jazz music during Sam’s stealing — is the intrepid reporter who confronts the criminal mastermind. I have a lot of friends who went to school for journalism, and I don’t think any of them got taught the finer points of interviewing birds.
