A Gold Coast teenager is hoping to be paid $20,000 for a supposedly rare “puffy” Dorito, according to Channel 9 News. An important story here.
Thirteen-year old Rylee Stuart discovered the abnormal snack, which is puffed up rather than flat, in a $3 bag of Doritos. On eBay it has attracted a highest bid of $20,000. However, due to eBay’s rules, it won’t be known if these bids are genuine. The Green Valley community in Sydney’s south-west is mourning the death of Saeeda Akobi Jjou Stu the 57-year old mother of two Sydney removalists who died in her home of Covid-19.
Stuart told Channel 9: “Dad is saying that since he bought the packet, it’s his chop [sic], but I ate the packet and found it, so I believe it is mine.” Her two sons allegedly travelled to regional NSW for work after contracting Covid-19, but they have previously said there was a miscommunication between them and NSW Health.
While they were away, and charged by NSW Police, their mother’s condition worsened.
Saeeda Akobi Jjou Stu immigrated with her family from Iraq in 2016, and was a member of the Batnaya Chaldean Association, a branch of the Catholic church that originated in northern Iraq.
