When the chips are down

The recent release of ‘Hitchcock’ the movie showcases the genius of the man who created world-class suspense films from his ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents’ series on TV introduced by that fantastic piece of music – ‘Funeral March of a Marionette’ by Charles Gounod. Some of my personal movie faves include, Rear Window, The Trouble with Harry, Rope and The Birds (to name but a few).

Similarly seagulls feature in most beach and bay areas around the world. Here’s a 3-D depiction of a bird captured through a street-art projection.

Fish & chips are synonymous with the seaside and therefore seagulls. So, I ask? Can you ever recall having a take-out fish&chip meal in paper-wrapping  on the beach without seagulls bickering, foraging and ultimately stealing your chips?

—then, why don’t they die of heart-attacks due to over-indulgence in high-fat chip high-cholesterol diets?  Can someone please explain!

— and my second question is …if this chip on the grass has been down since the night before, what’s wrong with it, and why hasn’t a seagull rescued it?….
