Sneaky Sam the Seagull Steals Some Chips

seagull.gif A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.

Dubbed “Sam” by the locals, the seagull waits until the shopkeeper 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.

Sneaky Sam’s shoplifting started in July 2007 when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

Customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of chips because they think it’s so funny.

    Too funny! I misunderstood at first–since it was in Scotland, I assumed chips meant fries, but now I see it is Dorito chips.

    Heh, I never thought about chips = fries in Scotland. My mother is from England. I was a child when we visited her family over there, and I think that was the first time I heard fries referred to as chips.

    they call thick cut fries chips in Australia.
    KFC fries are called chips, and mcdonalds fries are called fries.
