Get your Haggis right here! Chopped heart and lungs boiled in a wee sheep's stomach! Tastes as good as it sounds!

They should take it to Canada and have a haggis curling contest.

How about chopped pork innards stuffed into an intestine?

Or cow hooves and innards stuffed into an intestine?

How is haggis any different than the hot dog or sausage you buy off the street vendor?

If it's not Scottish, it's crap!

Of course, it was said better by the master:

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
Wi' perfect sconner,
Looks down wi' sneering, scornfu' view
On sic a dinner?

How revolting!

So if you threw two of them at one another fast enough, would you produce the Haggis Boson?
 
2012-08-20 10:33:52 AM  
Merely Scottish. Harrdly revolting.

Homemade haggis is actually quite delicious, especially when sliced and fried up for a Scottish breakfast.

Would it be disqualified if it was still in the tin?

"Most of the events are based on ways to kill people."

Wouldn't that be a haggis-eating contest?

\ Actually, a good haggis is actually pretty tasty... though it's damn hard to get a good haggis, even in Scotland, and near impossible in North America.

The local games are coming up soon.

Sheep dog demos are a lot of fun to watch, as well as the keg and sheaf toss.

Blocked by streams and rivers, they'd resort to hurling their handiwork to their mates who would either catch it in their kilts or settle for splattered, dirt-covered haggis. The historical record is unclear as to whether the latter was considered a calamity or a culinary improvement.

fark you. Your people eat cheese squirted out of a can.

defective, most certainly.

I actually like my aunt Maggie's haggis. She gets mad when I put a little hot sauce on it, but I put hot sauce on almost everything.

If it wasn't for haggis I wouldn't have learned how to type.

"Today, most haggis hurling is done not with cooked conglomerations of organs, oatmeal and suet, but with objects that mimic haggis' shape and heft."

Lame.

We can just turn it into a 'Hot redheads in kilts (or nothing) thread'. That way everyone is happy.
