Go Fetch Me a Pint

 

Wishing you a Happy Burns Night…..

And dish them out their bill o’ fare,

Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer
Gie her a haggis! – Address to the Haggis, Robbie Burns

There is nothing more attractive to me than a big, burly Scotsman dressed in a kilt, holding a glass of single malt scotch and offering it to ME.

    One of the best poems for the entire event. Love addressing the haggis. Love eating the haggis a little bit more. Even named my hound Haggis.
    Cheers!
