    I love the polite “*please* piss off.”

    It’s quite true of course. If it’s a steady diet of junk, there’s very little a decomposing mouse or two could do to worsen things. If anything a little protein to leaven the stale fat, carcinogens and carbohydrates – “mouseburger”.

    If bakers and pizza manufacturers can put vermin into their customers’ food, should a humble chip shop be excluded?

    And the Paisley Snail…

    This was a great find SL. I shared it on facebook, it must be admitted.

    I’m pretty sure Burns liked being seen as uncouth. Witness all the bawdy poems he wrote, and the following epitaph:

    Here lies with death auld Grizzel Grim
    Rineluden’s ugly witch.
    O death how horrid is thy taste,
    To lie with such a bitch!

    Gosh, (sniff) he musta really liked her. 🙂

    I think he just wanted to rhyme witch with bitch so he made her up.

    [email protected] if you want that dish, I expect you simply ask for the mouse special 😉

    Prude that I am, I did giggle on fb when I saw this … but … given “dinnae” and “whae” I’m wondering whether there is a more traditional celtic spelling (or indeed, different words) for the more anglo-saxon F and C

    He hasn’t spelt “geez” properly in Scots, either. The more traditional spellings of the two words you mention are R-A-N-G-E-R-S and C-E-L-T-I-C.

    I couldn’t help but read it with an accent. Very chuckleworthy

    DEM wins the internets for today…

    For some reason this is proving inordinately popular. Must be the Scottish sense of humour…

    [email protected] the comments attached to the image are the result of allowing comments to be attached to images within your post, as opposed to comments ON the post itself. This was raised a year back, and the solution is to disallow this WordPress feature at the time of posting the article to the blog.

    I can see why it could be a handy feature if a post contained half a dozen images, and people wanted to comment upon a particular pic – but with basically one image per post I think you are better off unticking this feature at time of posting – and/or maybe checking with Jacques to see if it can be turned off as a default setting so you don’t have to worry about it in the first place.


    DEM your link has a bolded sub heading “Freezing Balls” which sort of hit me in the eye. Thought it might be a local weather report for a moment 😉
