Barely understood a word of what the kid was saying.

It's not just offal, it's offal and oatmeal.

Can someone explain why there was a video of a kid talking in the tongue of Mordor, and then just when it gets to the haggis the video ends? How about more of the haggis?

What the hell was that kid even saying?! It's a wonder that they can understand each other, cause the rest of the world can't

TFA wasn't clear- but how do you make a haggis larger than the size of a sheep's stomach?  Was it from some radioactive godzilla-sized sheep?  Seems to me that that's the limitation on one of these things.

Agreed. Properly done haggis is a tasty thing.

Bigger than a compact car, yet somehow even less edible...

Little known fact: wwi era German zeppelins were made from sausage casings - thousands of them sewn together.

He's reciting the Address to a Haggis in the original tongue.

Are you trying to shut down a haggis thread by doing a Godwin? You bastard. There are distinct levels of Hell that were designed for people like you, and quite frankly, they're all too good for the likes of you.


Hey, at least I don't talk in the theater.

I believe the kid was saying that ground Trebek was added to the haggis this year.

A Scottish friend of mine who owned a pub got such a huge kick out of the Simpson's "Scotchtober Fest" that he celebrated it in his pub. Had a butcher stuff sausage casings with haggis and served it BBQd on a bun as Hagwurst.

It was really good.

Next time I'm smashed out of my mind I'll replay that video.  I bet it'll make perfect sense.

we're gonna need a bigger bottle of Scotch.

Better headline:

When no one was looking, Hall's made a ton of haggis. He made two thousand pounds worth. That's as many as twenty tens. And that's offal.

SuddenlySamhain: A teacher from my highschool days related this story:

  he was in Scotland on a vist with family , He was born and raised in the States though , He was in a restaurant with his them eating roast beef when he looked up and saw a young girl of around our age staring at him with a look of horror on her face. She never saw anyone eating red , juicy flesh before and she fainted. She was eating haggis.
 How much of his story was a bs lesson in acceptance I dont know. I kind of think he stretched the truth a little but the message was clear:
 Scotish people are garbage meat eating weirdos who faint easily.
USA USA USA....and roast beef


Yeah, it's bullshiat. Beef served to you in Scotland is going to be grey.

Can you understand Russian, French, or Swahili? Maybe they should all speak in your native tongue.

How much is BS? All of it from his initial inhale to tell you the CSB.

Either you or your teacher is a shiatty liar. There should be a little grain of truth to try to make the whole lie palatable.

Perhaps I'm a bit strange but I like haggis.  It tastes a bit like corn beef hash, except for the liver aftertaste which I'm not a fan of.

The real story here is how much of an embarrassment the kid on the pipes is.  Seriously, if you can't play well for the love of god stay away from video cameras.  You do the instrument a grave injustice.

There is a guy on liveleak who can be goated into lifting it. He even looks like a Scot.

Haggis proves that if you drink enough Scotch, you can stomach damn near anything.
 
2014-06-21 05:47:04 PM  
Goated?

/I see what you did there.
 
2014-06-21 06:13:04 PM  
I'd rather eat haggis than watch that video again.
 
2014-06-21 07:28:05 PM  
Mmmm, hagis is delicious.
 
2014-06-21 09:30:04 PM  
This one time I was in a shopping mall in Edinburgh. All I had was a 2£ note and a 50£ note. I wanted to pick up something to eat at the local Haggis Bell...

 Well , according to your response my 'csb' qualifies as a 'palatable lie'.
I wrote the truth but as an off the cuff anecdote , ( with little effort at thorough recalling  a  30 year old memory), Nevertheless if it WERE a lie surely your palate could taste what would clearly be considered  a 'grain of truth'


I used to be a short order cook at a bar and on two different occasions I received orders from someone who was British and both times they wanted a cheeseburger, and they wanted it cooked so well done that there was absolutely no juice whatsoever left in the burger.  The first time this happened I sent out what I thought was a hockey puck, and it was sent back as having too much juice left in it!  Now, this is only 2 people, but I have spoken to other people who have encountered this "super well done" mentality from the United Kingdom and that these people are grossed out by the thought of blood in their meat.  No, I am not saying that everyone or even a significant percentage of people over there are like this, but I can completely understand a story about someone from the United Kingdom being completely grossed out over the sight of red meat.  The passing out part is more than a bit sketchy, as is the part about never having seen someone eat red meat before, but most of the story is, to me at least, believable.
