Friendly Neighbours

by duncanr

a guy gets drunk at a party, leaves to get a taxi home, misses it, and decides to return to the party and wait there till the morning

when he re-enters the house where the party was held, it’s all quiet, the guests have all left,and the owners of the house have gone to bed, so he makes himself some pot noodles in the kitchen, then falls asleep on the sofa

in the morning, when the householders wake him up, he discovers he is in the wrong house

as one commentator on youtube says- ‘if this had happened in the US this poor fellow probably would’ve been shot

as it’s Scotland, however, when the householders find a strange man sleeping in their living room, they offer him a cigarette and a cup of tea . . .

It’s no Edinboro

by duncanr

a wee video listing some interesting things about Scotland for anyone who doesn’t know much about the country

ye’d think though that if someone went to the trouble of researching and producing a video about Scotland, they’d take the time to learn how to pronounce the name of the country’s capital city, Edinburgh – it’s Edinbrruh (where the ‘u’ is pronounced as is the’u’ in the word ‘up’) but most definitely NOT Edinboro !

No, that’s not where haggis actually comes from. Scotland is just as full of shit as we are.

And so it starts

by duncanr

Hogmany/New Year is the occasion for great celebration in Scotland, much more so than Xmas

indeed, for 400 years – mid 16th century – mid 20th Century – christmas was hardly celebrated at all in Scotland with December 25 only becoming a public holiday in 1958 and Boxing Day . . .not recognised as a festive holiday until 1974 ( http://tinyurl.com/y8fhkxne )

while the rest of the world parties on New Years Eve to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new, in Scotland, New Year celebrations start before Dec 31 and extend beyond Jan 01

so it was that yesterday saw thousands of ordinary revellers bearing flaming torches join pipers and other entertainers in a parade through the streets of Edinburgh . . .

Let the Wind blow High

by duncanr

the kilt (with nothing worn underneath it, of course) has been described as a garment ideally suited for shitting, and shagging – it is not without drawbacks, however, when climbing Scotland’s mountains in mid-December . . .

an expected benefit of this change in the law was a reduction in the number of road traffic accidents (RTAs) attributable, in part, to alcohol consumption

however, a recent study has found that the . . .
