Wikipedia also made a second, lesser known edit: After 10 minutes the penguin yelled, "I canna take this shite no more", flipped Piper Kerr the bird and waddled off in a fit of anger.

Loved the drone sighting and the Hamster's Public Service Announcement too -- thanks for the belly laughs this morning, Debra!

How many of us will now be trying to entertain kids with home made recorder bagpipes.?

Valerie said...

Four musicians of the apocalypse is genius! I feel the Burn!

Marie Smith said...

Happy day! Love that second meme.

Martha said...

I was expecting to see Bernie in there somewhere lol!

Lady M said...

Aye love the pipes - Liathach the Gaelic wonder horse does too. Nice post - perhaps I will make a shepard's pie in celebration as I am not about to eat haggis.

I like bagpipe music...in small doses. and a man in a kilt is sexy!

Frank said...

Little known fact/theory: Some historians believe that bagpipes originate from ancient Egypt and were brought to Scotland by invading Roman Legions.

In Italy, the bagpipe or zampogne, (not to be confused with a Zamboni)are still a traditional musical instrument, especially during processions around the Feast of St. Nicholas and certain Christmas carols. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2Gs3DjE_Hc

Martha said...

HAHA! These were so funny, especially the last one!

jaz@octoberfarm said...

My maternal grandmother longed for a career as a professional singer. Unfortunately for her career plans, she had three children (later, a 4th, and you could also count her husband as a 5th), and she said they always acted up when she tried to practice her voice exercises. Nevertheless, she had a good voice and received numerous invitations from Bobbie Burns clubs to sing. She also was invited to sing for KDKA, a fledgling radio station in Pittsburgh, PA, because she could "sing loud."

DVArtist said...

These are great.

Hena Tayeb said...

Have no idea who Robbie Burns is but these are all great.

Elsie Amata said...

Oh my gosh, the last one made me laugh way too hard. We went to a Scottish festival one year and they did a Caber toss - Wow! Just wow!

Hello Debra, I have several cheap recorders and Flute-o-phones lying around. If I can get them together, I am definitely going to try the garbage bag trick!

brewella deville said...

I'll sip a wee dram in his honor tonight.

Mike said...

If I ever wear a kilt I will be commando. And I will go find a windy place to stand.

Rosemary said...

My eldest son has a kilt made from a tartan designed especially for the school he attended in Scotland. He was born in Scotland too.

e said...

I laughed so hard at the Four Musicians of the Apocalypse that I startled Monsieur Pierre! Laughed the rest of the way through, too.

Have you seen/heard any of the Sea Shanty songs going viral, Debra? Check out Nathan Evans, a bonnie young Scotsman! https://youtu.be/u8QpbqDT7tE

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ e -- You are a psychic! My post on Saturday is going to concern that exact sea shanty! I'm crazy for it!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Yes!
Men on Kilts!! Yes, yes, yes!
Did you know I like men in Kilts?
Oh, the memories... and I ain't talking Braveheart.

XOXO

mshatch said...

Seeing as how I'm a quarter Scots, I'm all for men in kilts playing bagpipes :)

Joanne Noragon said...

A lovely celebration.

Magic Love Crow said...

Brilliant Deb!! Big Hugs!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Hahaha. These are hysterical. I especially love the "don't get kilt" one.
Thanks for the chuckles, Debra.

Janie Junebug said...

Before the first day of classes at my daughter's prep school, they held an "opening convocation" in the chapel. The ceremony always commenced with a man in a kilt walking down the center aisle playing bagpipes--something I've also seen in some movies about fancy-schmancy schools. I've never known what the significance was of the bagpipes.

Love,
Janie

I tried to imitate a Scottish accent for this comment, but it kept sounding Irish, so I gave up.

Sue Bursztynski said...

Thanks, Debra, another hilarious lot of images! I do like the flying bagpipes! The four musicians of the apocalypse are what I hope to hear when we all get left behind in the Rapture!

One year I’d like to celebrate Burns Night, despite not being Scottish. It must b3 good fun!

G. B. Miller said...

Nice.

Home Improvement had an entire episode devoted to one of those Highland Games and it featured Tim Taylor wearing one commando.

Val Ewing said...

Ahhh, such a great moment of fun...thank you!

Suz said...

These are all so funny, but the last one with the grass really got me!

Bill Lisleman said...

I think the bag pipes would get more respect if they were given a more respectable name like Oboe or Bassoon.

JACKIESUE said...

you still have the bagpipes record I sent you years ago?

Ur-spo said...

I had a friend who played the pipes; I was one of his only friends :-)

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Jackiesue -- Oh yes, I still have it! Every once in awhile, I pull out my record player and play it! I love bagpipes.

Rommy said...

I actually enjoy the sound of bagpipes every now and again. Oh sure, I don't think I'd like it as meditation music or a backdrop for a romantic evening, but otherwise, they're fine.

Magaly Guerrero said...

The Wikipedia edit had me rolling!

Bea said...

I have a friend whose daughter was born on this day and it helps me remember her birth date, let me tell you!

Rain said...
