The Doritos clip is a hoot -- so is your parking experience. And yes, gulls absolutely are thugs. I've spent enough childhood vacations on the North Sea coast to have plenty of "waitaminute, where did that food walk off to" memories, too (though nothing quite as striking of what you're sharing in this post).

I'm sure I've shared this before, but even the city council takes the gulls seriously:

That's a pretty well-done flyer, actually! I wish something of the sort were available in German coastal holiday resorts. (Plenty about gulls as part of the local wildlife, but not much about their specific behavior and how to "cohabitate" with them ...)

TBH I'm Team Steven. Breakfast is the best meal of the day and he needs the energy from breakfast foods for his thuggery. I'm a fan LOL

LOL. ... You don't have Steven "supervising" your work while working from home during this lockdown. You'd change your mind then, I'm sure of it.

But... since the pubs and nightclubs are closed, gulls don't get to feast on chips and take away food that they steal from people walking home after a night out, so by breakfast time, they are probably very, very hangry at the moment.
