I remember robbing a 10p bag of Haribos when I was 5. I was such a gangster.
Well, that was before I was marched back into the shop and forced to apologise through shameful tears. Lesson learnt. Street cred forever crushed.
Two little serial thieves in Canada, however, have learned no such lesson about stealing, and have robbed chocolate from shop keeper, Paul Kim, on over 40 different occasions!
They clearly have some vendetta against poor Paul. Maybe it’s the fact that his name is Paul, yet his shop is called ‘Luke’s Grocery’.
Or maybe it’s the fact that they are squirrels.
Yes, Paul has become a victim of a couple of maverick squirrels who have taken a liking to his chocolate. Not being fussy (and not even caring for nuts), they steal his Crunchies, Kinder Bueno and something called ‘Mr Big’.
Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Who would call a chocolate bar Mr Big? Probably someone who finds the idea of people putting ‘Mr Big’ in their mouths funny.
Anyway…despite Paul knowing the fact that he’s being stolen from by the duo, he’s unable to do anything about it:
“When we come around the counter to try to catch it, we can see the squirrel running off with the bar in its mouth”
“We tried running after it, but it’s still faster. A couple times, passers-by and customers tried chasing after it with us, but once it goes up a tree, it’s game over.”
I spose over time they will get fatter and easier to catch. Then maybe they’ll have to apologise too.
