I would like to wish everyone a happy Burns Night. It's been a busy year for me catching all them Haggis, but I know alot of Scots are grateful. Unfortunately no Haggis in Norway and my dearest didn't post one out to me.
'orrible disease; perhaps that's what the twa wives had...
There were twa wives, and twa witty wives,
As e'er play'd houghmagandie,
And they coost oot, upon a time,
Out o'er a drink o' brandy;
Up Maggy rose, and forth she goes,
And she leaves auld Mary flytin,
And she f*rted by the byre-en'
For she was gaun a sh*ten.
She f*rted by the byre-en',
She f*rted by the stable;
And thick and nimble were her steps
As fast as she was able;
Till at yon dyke-back the hulrly brak,
But raxin for some dockins,
The beans and peas cam down her thighs,
And she cackit a' her stockins.
He didn't just write posh stuff for Burns' suppers!
(Used to be able to do most of Tam O' Shanter from memory but the marbles have gone now. )
