A seagull after my own Dorito-loving heart

I’m sorry for the paucity of posts on philosophical topics the last few weeks. The semester comes to a frantic end when you’re teaching 8 sections, scattered over 5 schools, 4 land masses, and 3 states, as I am.

But Tuesday morning will be my final lecture and a week from tonight is my final day having to travel out of Manhattan. At that point, as I finish my grading for the semester I will slowly begin to ramp up for a summer of steady blogging. Thanks for your patience in the meantime. As a reward, please enjoy this cute video of a smart little seagull who shares my passion for Doritos, which come courtesy of Nick.

  • ‘Tis Himself

    Sailors call seagulls “flying rats.” They’ll eat anything that appears even semi-edible.

  • nomadic

    It’s only a matter of time before the Seagull Mafia starts terrorizing all of Scotland.

    You see? YOU SEE!? This is what comes of European-style Socialism and the breakdown of Christian Values™. Damn freeloading birds stealing Doritos from hard-working entrepreneurs.
