Robert Burns - D of B 25 January 1759

============================================

============================================

Just for our Scottish members on the anniversary of Rabbie's birthday:


Recalling this line in the Address to the Haggis:

"...Your hurdies like a distant hill..."







Then what better than a strong mug of this for tomorrow's inevitable hangover?

Thanks BOOTWU and 'Lang mae yer lum reek'.

I like these lines from "Tam o' Shanter", they remind me of Mrs F when I am out on the piss.

'Where sits our sulky, sullen dame,
Gathering her brows like gathering storm,
Nursing her wrath to keep it warm'.

Went to his house on a visit,very interesting and I may have some photo's of it somewhere.
I noticed they kept the animals in there as well, it was either to keep the house warm as they do in Austria or for a quick shag!
He was ferocious with the women but nothing like the real thing!:laughing2:

Or when your on the piss...
'Inspiring bold john barleycorn
what dangers thou can make us scorn'.

I shall be reciting this one at our Burns Night on Friday..........

Address Tae a Faert
With apologies to Rabbie Burns

Oh what a sleekit horrible beastie,
Lurks in yerbelly efter the feastie.
As ye sitdoon with kith an’ kin,
There stertsto stir an enormous win.
The neeps an’tatties an’ mushie peas,
Stert workin’like a gentle breeze.

But soon thepuddin’ wi the sonsie face,
Will have yeblowin’ a’ ower the place.
Nae matterwhit the hell ye dae,
A’bodie’sgonnae have tae pay.
Even if yetry tae stifle,
It’s like abullet oot a rifle.

Howd yer bumtight tae yer chair,
Tae try an’stop the leakin’ air.
Shift yerselfrae cheek tae cheek,
Pray tae Godit disnae reek.
But aw yerefforts gan asunder,
Oot it comeslike a clap o’ thunder!

Ricochetsaroon’ the room,
Michty me! Asonic boom.
GodAlmighty, it fairly reeks!
Hope ahhuvnae shit ma breeks!
Tae the bogah´d better scurry,
Ach whit thehell, it´s no ma worry.

A´body roonaboot me chokin’,
Wan or twawere nearly bokin’.
Ah´ll feelbetter for a while,
Cannae helpbut raise a smile.
‘Twas him!Ah shoutwith accusin glower,
Alas! Toolate! He´s just keeled ower.

Ye dirtybugger, they shout and stare,
A dinnaefeel welcome any mair.
Where e’reye be let yer wind gan free,
Sounds likejust the job fer me an’ thee.
Whit a fussat Rabbie’s party,
All fer thesake o’ wan wee faerty!

Our Burns Night went off a storm! 20 of us had a brilliant night, as proved by the sore heads yesterday! It helps when we can get whisky for around 4 euros a bottle! We even managed to get haggis - from Iceland in Fuengirola!! I was persuaded to do the Ode tae a Faert at the very end of the night - thought I'd got away with it this year! I didn't write it - I am led to believe it was a chap I worked with on Type 45 project in Glasgow.

Need to relax now, only a year 'til we do it again.

I was round my old mans for Burns night on the 25th and woke the next day as if i'd been rescued from a train wreck. Damn that chief of the puddin' race.

With the help of a few low flyers .... What is title, what is treasure, What is reputation`s care? If we lead a life of pleasure,`Tis no matter how or where! Chorus: A fig for those by law protected! Liberty`s a glorious feast! Courts for cowards were erected,Churches built to please the priest.

I have an Officers mess burns supper tomorrow night. The long haired Oscar Charlie (also commissioned) shall accompany my good self, but there is a turd in the u-bend. I'm driving. There is one good thing about this. At the last mess dinner, i kept making comments to the Colonel (Yeomanry) about the tightness and gayness of his mess kit trousers. This time the conversation will be more formal.

Just got back from a "BN" Lunch sat next to the Octopus Wrestler, he and the poet received a bottle each for their efforts.

On the bottle was a sticker "This item is fitted with a microchip device "please remove before microwaving""

FFS who sticks a bottle of single malt in a microwave and turns it on??? and what would be the effect?
