A little something for the Scottish
« on: January 26, 2018, 10:31:25 AM »

Prince Charles is making a hospital visit in Scotland and goes into a ward and asks the patients how they are.

The first one replies -

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm.

He walks away a bit puzzled, goes to the next bed and the patient says

Some hae meat and cannae eat.
Some cannae eat that want it:
But we hae meat and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.

He moves on to the third patient who says,

Wee sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae hasty,
Wi bickering brattle!
I wad be laith to rin an chase thee,
Wi murdering pattle!

Prince Charles turns to the doctor who’s showing him round and asks if this is the psychiatric ward?

The doctor says "Oh no, it’s not the psychiatric ward, it’s the serious Burns unit"

I'm pretty sure I saw this back when it was a Monty Python sketch, or maybe it's just a very. old. joke.
On s'envolera du même quai
Les yeux dans les mêmes reflets,
Pour cette vie et celle d'après
Tu seras mon unique projet.

Je t'aimais, je t'aime, et je t'aimerai.

Had a wee dram last night in honour.
