    Default Bones... a story from PPB!

    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.'

    The seagull can have the Bud.. if it goes for Guinness, it will have to be stopped!

    I just get a mental image of someone holding the door, both coming and going, for this $h!thawk. Doesn't that make 'em an accessory to the crime?

    There's a video that goes along with it. Pretty funny.

    And yes, the current version is going around stating Point Pleasant Beach. However, we can't claim it. I can say, it's not here. We would gladly let the seagulls have all the Bud.
