At age 15, every Scottish male is given a verbal test to prove his eligibilty to be a Scottish adult - he must say "Who are you lookin' at ?" and "Aye - right !" well enough to convince the judging panel.

The media don't help matters when they call those they perceive to be on the way up British and the ones coming down Scottish .
Andy Murray being the latest to get that quill in the back.
Decades of that sort of spin takes its toll on people

if you can understand this then your on your way to being scots

A lively young damsel named Menzies
Inquired: "Do you know what this thenzies?"
Her aunt, with a gasp,
Replied: "It's a wasp,
And you're holding the end where the stenzies."

Strangely enough, I understood that, Tig. Unlike my mother, who is looking at the screen right now with a confused look on her face.
