I love the spirit of enterprise you show there. Very megalithic.

The best way to catch a haggis is of course to put a potato and a small turnip in the pan. They love them and fall for the trick every time.

Unfortunately they are an endangered species as you probably know. Not helped by the fact that the legs of the male are longer on one side for the reason you mention. However, the females have legs longer on the other side. So it's very rare for them to meet especially in the breeding season. They keep passing each other as they run in opposite directions.

You may be interested to learn that the Haggis Protection League have started to encourage the production of Mock Haggis or Vegetarian Haggis. Which, in the view of many, is akin to wearing boxer shorts under your sledge kilt.

Ahoy there!

Apologies for the silence, our local Burns Night was epic, and so were the hangovers. Stupid caterers bought live haggis with them! Fortunately M'Lady had the 12-bore at hand (she takes it everywhere). But picking lead shot out of the neaps and tatties took some time, and the house-stock of single malts took a hammering.

Good news chaps!
Rab C Nesbitt will be in the new Whisky Galore. Along with Eddie Izzard. Not sure how that works?

Eddie Izzard will be in a permanent kilt I would imagine.

Poetic irony, but Eddie Izzard is cast as the token Sassenach idiot, therefore the only one not likely to be properly attired.

By the way, the music for the film should be excellent. Our good friend, Patrick Doyle, has been signed up. Appropriately, he's a Scottish film composer. He's been the music composer for a few minor English films, like Bridget Jones's Diary, Gosford Park, Calendar Girls, Nanny McPhee, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So this is his chance to break into the Scottish big time!

For all my good TME friends, some advance notice. The post-mortem Collective Works of Boreades will soon be published, along with the stipulation that they use the type font Times Ironic.
