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

Tillmaster: 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.


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. ...

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

BitwiseShift: 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.


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."

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.

Metastatic Capricorn: 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.


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.
