Proud to be Scottish

Postby newgirl » Tue, 05 Apr 2005 10:00 pm

This made me laugh (but definitely not homesick)

16 Reasons why you should be proud to be Scottish...


1. Only in Scotland...can a pizza get to your house before an
ambulance.


2. Only in Scotland...do supermarkets make sick people walk to the
back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people
can buy cigarettes at the front.


3. Only in Scotland...do people order double cheeseburgers, large
fries, and a diet Irn Bru.


4. Only in Scotland...do banks leave both doors open and chain the
pens to the counters.


5. Only in Scotland...do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds in
the drive and keep our junk & lawnmowers in the garage.


6. Three Scots die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their
tongue.


7. 142 Scots were injured in 1999 by not removing all pins from new
shirts.


8. 58 Scots are injured each year by using sharp knives as
screwdrivers.


9. 31 Scots have died since 1996 by watering Christmas trees while
the fairy lights were on.


10. 19 Scots have died in the last 3 years believing that all
Christmas decorations were made of chocolate.


11. Scottish hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after
cracker pulling accidents.


12. 101 people since 1999 have had to have broken parts of plastic
toys pulled out of the soles of their feet.


13. 19 Scots have had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumpers
with a lit cigarette in their mouths.


14. A massive 543 Scots were admitted into A & E in the last two
years after opening beer bottles with their teeth.


15. 5 Scots were injured last year in accidents involving out of
control scalextric cars.

I am half scottish, my father is from Edingburh. He has never found it that hard to make himself understood in Singapore or anywhere else in the world! I hope you can understand what I am trying to say...
