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

Scottish DH has been practising the address to the haggis repeatedly ready for Burns Night tonight! I love the Scottish smileys, thank you!

When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,
He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown,
But now he has gotten a hat and a feather -
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush!
We'll over the border and gie them a brush:
There's somebody there we'll teach better behavior -
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

(this makes me grin every time I think of it, even though I know it's not actually rude at all.

Where's the haggis?

More importantly, where's the single male malt?
