The Most Scottish Thing In Edinburgh

That’s what Alison said.
That’s what she wanted.

So here we have a little bagpiper on a haggis supper (with salt and sauce) in front of Edinburgh Castle.

That there is pretty feckin’ Scottish.

All it’s missing is some heroin.

And social deprivation.

    Excellent shot, I do miss chippy sauce (in first year at uni someone tried to explain why it was the best thing ever and we thought it was minging, then tried it and agreed)!

    Silly Win-Stone. The piper has drunk the Irn Bru, obviously.

    You mean that they’re not blowing *into* the bagpipe – they’re actually using it as a straw to drink the Bru? :-0

    Yep, that’s how it works. Explains the noise, doesn’t it…

    Oh! and here’s me always thinking that the noise was just a way of warning you that they were there – thereby giving you a chance to get away……………. !

    Yup, battered, deep fried and everything. You can also get black, white or red pudding in a similar format! Not that I’ve ever eaten any of them.

    My friends son took a bottle of chippy sauce to uni with him (in a Barrs Cream Soda bottle) and spent the first week of uni in hospital having his thumb reconstructed when he tried to stab the bottle top open with a screwdriver…dangerous stuff sauce!

    I still remember my bafflement when, on my first visit to a chippy NOT in Edinburgh (aged about 5) when they asked if I wanted salt and vinegar. Salt and vinegar? What the heck? No, I want salt and sauce. That’s a proper chippy.
