This man wants to collect chips from every single Weatherspoon in Britain
Well, I don’t know how I should react to that
There are 925 Weatherspoons in the UK and Boris Bennett - a 45-year-old man from Bury - has made it his mission to collect one chip from every single one of them. Why? Not sure.
Hold on, because there’s more. Mr Bennett says he actually carries a folder of chips around with him - obviously - so he can collect, label and file chips based on where he picked them up.
Bennett is super-serious about this. He recently told Metro.co.uk (yes, they wanted an interview) that he meticulously coats chips in Vasline and wax them to preserve their integrity.
Weatherspoon is unsurprisingly very happy with the free publicity they’ve been receiving. A spokesperson from the company was quoted saying “[Boris Bennett] is one of a kind.”
Bennett says he’s collected 35 chips so far, and he recently shared a picture on Facebook with the following caption: “I am currently on a mission to collect and record 1 chip from every Wetherspoons in Britain, and here is what I have got so far.“
If you are wondering “does that bloke really walk around with a trading cards collection book full of chips?” The answer is yes, yes I do,”
