Unfortunately, HEWN (the Haggis Early Warning Network) was retired in 1999. The FOOLS!

Haggis is delicious. It's like the most flavorful meatloaf you ever had.

I'm in northern Scotland for work, too bad everything is locked down. A party with Haggis and Scotch at any pub up here would have been awesome. Then again, that could be any night once things get back to normal.

I had haggis in a pub where Burns used to hang out in Edinburgh, but it might have been tourist haggis consisting of ground up Big Macs cooked in a sheep's stomach.

Haggis does not deserve its bad reputation.

Haggis and Talisker is my heaven.

Netflix just revealed the ninth season of the Craigsland's own "Still Game."  It's like watching Janey Godley in a story format.  Just in time for Rabbie Burns Nicht.

So why can't we send all of it there?

/ And all the bagpipes while we're at it
// Send me all the scotch, though.

Space Haggis.

Humanity can launch a haggis into space, but can't make a toupee that doesn't get big laughs.

Agreed. Like any kind of food it can be done really poorly or top notch, But when it's good it's sublime.

They did not launch it far enough.

Got mine in the fridge ready for the 25th.  I'm not Scottish, it's just delicious.  Can't get on board with whisky sauce though.

How Haggis Was Invented:

"Hoot, mon, what're we ta do weth all these leftovah parrrts here on teh floor now that te good meat's been squared away?"

"I'll bet ye a quid I can trick Seamus inta eatin' 'em!"

Shh, do you want the aliens to find out about haggis?

Best haggis I've had was a saddle of hare stuffed with haggis at the Kinloch House Hotel.

If haggis is on the menu, I'm ordering.

Scottish comedian Fred MacAulay told the story that Burns' "Address to the Haggis" was once translated into German so that a group of Germans could participate in the ceremony, but the Germans had it translated back into English as they felt was proper; their retranslation changed the line "Great Chieftan O' the Puddin' Race" to "Mighty Führer of the Sausage People."

You want to piss an alien off and start an intergalactic war? Because this is how you piss off an alien and start an intergalactic war....

I doubt they launched it hard enough to crack a windshield or anything. It's bound to lose velocity the farther it goes.

I don't care how good something tastes.  I simply refuse to eat anything cooked in a Scot's cumdumpster.

With a haggis??

How appropriate - Haggis is heavenly.

Can't get the real thing in the US, unfortunately. The locally produced stuff doesn't include lungs, and does include High Fructose Corn Syrup.

I literally just made this!

...and I used this as an ingredient.  There will be no leftovers....(hic).

That sounds absolutely amazing.  As in, "I'm going to go to Scotland after lockdown and eating that" compellingly delicious.  My mouth watered so suddenly and vigorously that I thought I was going to be sick at one point.

You could make it yourself... a local abattoir could probably set you up with lights and the other required bits.

Steps:
1. Hollow out a sheep
2. Throw away the good bits
3. ...

My town has an abattoir, despite being just 26.2 miles outside Boston. They don't handle sheep, but I'm guessing if they did, while I might get a small amount of initial resistance, but they'd set me up.

That said, I have no desire to do it. Apparently, the smell during cooking is god-awful.

It might be if preparing from scratch, I guess.

I had haggis, neeps and tatties the other day. Early, sure, but mum had bought a neep too early to last until Monday, so had a Burns supper while watching Biden's inauguration.

Shop bought haggis, you can even microwavé it for not much time at all. I steamed it for an hour - since I was boiling neep and tatties anyway - and there's no stink at all.

But, then, shop bought, in a plastic chub. Not intestine or stomach or whatever.

/Never had a problem with haggis, but in terms of offal, I've always thought tripe looks nasty.

They seem to have confused 100,000m with 100,000'. They got nowhere near "the edge of space".

Yeah. That's to what I was referring. Specifically, the lights are the bit that stinks most.

Yup. An essential part of a full Scottish breakfast. Well, or black pudding. Or white pudding. They do know their offal.
