Och aye, lassies and laddies, 'tis time once again to celebrate the birthday of Scotland's greatest poet. So in the spirit of the Bard hisself, here's my wee annual collection of Scottish LOLs to tickle yer haggis.
It goes without saying that EVERYBODY is Scottish on Robbie Burns Day --
And it's the one day of the year that men can safely wear a skirt in even the most macho of cultures --
Now, WHY are Scots such badasses? Surely the answer is obvious. It's their take-no-prisoners approach to life --
A few months ago, Scotland held a referendum on independence from the U.K. Let's just say the results were not QUITE as expected.
Well, at least they saved the Union Jack.
The referendum demonstrated that there's always hard lessons to be learned in this life.
Now be off with ye or I swear to God I'll start singing "Ye Banks and Braes o' Bonnie Doon" in my best fake Scottish accent. And none of us wants that.
