Al Qaeda Cock Up

by The Madhatters

Oops !

Oops !

Al Qaeda has been eclipsed in the news recently by ISIS

in an apparent move to advertise that it has not gone into liquidation, it announced the opening of a new branch in India

its Grand Opening bombed, however, when its fighters attacked the wrong ship

in related news, Al Qaeda (India) is looking for a new operations manager (an ability to tell the difference between an American aircraft carrier and a Pakistani frigate would be an advantage) after the current holder resigned to spend more time with his family

Scotland : On a Knife’s Edge

by The Madhatters

scotland scissors with less than a week before folk living in Scotland decide whether or not to sever ties with the rest of the UK and become an independent nation again, the latest polls show only a few percentage points separating the two sides – the advantage lying with those campaigning for a NO vote

whatever the result of the vote on Thursday, a narrow win for either side is the worst possible outcome

if the NO camp wins by a small majority – having come so close but yet so far, the YES campaigners will only be motivated to try again soon

on the other hand, if the YES camp carries the day, starting . . .

let's talk this over, eh ?

let’s talk this over, eh ?

there’s  a saying over here – don’t cut off your nose to spite your face - meaning don’t do anything hasty that involves some harm to yourself simply to get revenge/punish someone who you feel has hurt you in some way

this is similar to the hindi expression – don’t cut off your penis to spite your wife - http://tinyurl.com/p5qz8y7

Something for the Weekend – No 127

by The Madhatters

when I was a lad, growing up in Scotland in the 50’s/60’s, Kenneth McKellor appeared on TV every Hogmanay and was a regular guest on the TV show – The White Heather Club

Though he sang traditional scottish songs, he sang them in a staid, respectable, parlour room style, so I was pleasantly surprised to find he was not as strait-laced as his TV appearances had led me to believe – here is his bawdy rendition of The Kirriemuir Ball

P.S. some few of you may spot a mistake in the pics accompanying the video

Don’t forget, if you want to listen again to previous weekend songs, go to the ‘category filter’ on the side bar and select ‘something for weekend’ from the drop down list

And be sure to post your own favourite song(s) in the comment section to this post
