Haggis in Context


Was is Aberdeen airport yesterday. Asked for haggis in the restaurant. Was told it was off the menu. Bit like arriving in Wigan and being told the pies are off.

Context is everything; see a bloke in a skirt and you think it strange - make the skirt tartan and give the bloke a furry purse to hang on a chain and suddenly it's the complete antithesis of what a bloke in a skirt initially brings to mind.

    If you don't wear underwear its a kilt
    if you wear silk panties its a skirt..
