Subby: Read the article, yet didn´t understand that they used the lard during the war when it was still fresh, not now.

Looks like old water-logged haggis.

Sorry but I refuse to believe that it's World War II lard.   Something would have eaten it.

Perhaps there's another explanation.  Maybe the ocean now has a cholesterol problem.

Aye, and truly the lard moves in mysterious ways

So damn hungry for some fried black pudding now. All your fault subby!

Last time I was in Scotland, they considered (American) Budweiser to be the nectar of the gods. So yeah, I can totally understand why they'd eat 70 year old lard.

Thats because it's thin and tasteless enough for them to drink 30 pints in a sitting.
 
2013-01-18 06:27:19 PM  
They are Scottish and it was free lard.
 
2013-01-18 06:28:30 PM  
we're talking about people who eat haggis, so really this doesn't surprise me
 
2013-01-18 06:29:05 PM  
Hopefully some Lipitor will wash up.
 
2013-01-18 06:29:46 PM  
Of course they used the lard.

How else are they going to deep fry their heroin?

Yeah right. Like a Scotsman is going to pay for 30 pints of (relatively expensive "import") Bud instead of 15 pints of Tennents.

this is now the laird's lard, laddie

Aye, the lard smugglers have been at it ag'in. They put the lard in 1940's vintage barrels and buckets (because they're thrifty Scots) and dump it in the sea, where their confederates haul it out and pretend it's World War II vintage lard. Lard is very expensive on the black market in the Nanny State. It's replaced tobacco, Scotch, American cigarettes and nylons as the top commodity smuggled.

There was a set-back when McDonald's stopped using beef lard because the Hindus complainted but it was temporary because McDonald's never actually stopped using beef lard. They just said they did. Nota Bene: I mean McDonald's, the Scottish deep-fried Mars Bar chain, not the restaurant of the same name in America. The McDonald, Laird of the McDonalds of that ilk (not to be confused with the lard of McDonald's) said they could use the name or else he'd sue the Americans pantless. That shut the McDonald lawyers up like a clam at a clam bake.

The Wee Barns (which is where they keep the lard when they haul it up the beach) are full of lard, as is everything else in Scotland, including the shortbread. As for eating 1940s lard, it's not impossible but it's not nearly as nice as two hundred year old bog butter, which is also edible because it isn't strictly toxic.

Came for the Lard reference. Leaving satisfied.

You don't eat washed-up lard unless you're desperate. You use it for biodiesel or soap. When you're too lazy to collect human lipids, I mean.

I've never bought lard nor do I recall Mom or Grandma ever cooking with it. They preferred butter. Grandma might have used lard for pie crusts or something before I reached the Age of Reason but what I remember her using was Crisco.

That's just what they told you to stop you competing with them for the actual beer.
