As next week comes to an end and 5 and 20 comes around.  We remember a lot of bad things and bad people in this world.  But as we remember the good we should remember the great.  Remember Rabbie Burns.  Starter for 10.  What is your favourite song/poem ?  Mines is Afton Water.

Greatest genius Scotland has ever had.  We have had many.  Burns tops the lot.  England can keep Shakespeare and Wales should be proud of Thomas.  But Burns is Abin them a'.

Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
Fareweel our ancient glory!
Fareweel ev'n to the Scottish name.
Sae famed in martial story!
Now Sark rins over Salway sands,
An' Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark where England's province stands --
 
O, would, or I had seen the day
That Treason thus could sell us,
My auld grey head had lien in clay
Wi' Bruce and loyal Wallace!
But pith and power, till my last hour
I'll mak this declaration :-
'We're bought and sold for English gold'--
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

A nod to the Hamilton pub where I had my first pint o' heavy and my first malt:

Go, fetch to me a pint o' wine,
And fill it in a silver tassie;
That I may drink before I go,
A service to my bonie lassie.
 

(My Bonie Mary.)

Rabbie Burns was going home from the pub one night sees a young couple up an alleyway so he and stands and watches.  The police arrive and say “Rabbie, you’ll need to go to court and testify as a witness”

 

The judge calls him and asks what he seen. “I seen two folk shaggin your honour” 

 

“You can’t use that sort of language in court” cried the judge 

 

“Ok then your honour

I was coming back from Brigadoon

When I saw twa people lying doon

Her skirt was high

His erse was bare

His cock was in aboot her pubic hair

His baws were swinging to and fro

So if that’s no shaggin then I don’t know”

I still don't get it.  I started a post about Scotland's Bard on Burns birthday.  Now there are cryptic messages telling folk to fuck off etc. about an Ayr game.  I am doing a couple of recitals tomorrow at a Burns Supper and looking forward to it.  The response on this board to one of our national hero's speaks for itself.  Burns, would understand.  Scotty would not comment on such a man though.  Burns died on the same day as pope pious Scotty.  Bet you didn't know that pal.

What has his unfortunate disease got to do with him strolling about Westminster with his colonial masters and other Quisling Scottish Tories dressed in a Tartan suit ya fucking dick - particularly in the current political climate when Scotland is being shafted by the very same people he is being patronised by
