    Tig - yer jist a big blaw bag

    I needed three attempts on questions 8 and 10.

    But in my defense, wean (pronounced wane for our american cuzzies) is usually Glasgow area so guessing a few of the questions are West Coast, namely 8 and 10.


    Whit? Nae questions on cundies, sievers, pletties, or schemies?

    Can anyone (not Scottish) decipher this one and where would you hear it being said?

    kin ah get a pie ina bridie ina ingin ane anaw?

    No googling the answer. LOL

      aye i think it took a few from each area

      i think they both are from aberdeen or dundee or something but theyre certainly no west coast ones

      my favourite has always been

      huzthebinmanbeenman

      or heavy oan the sprinkles (said at the van)

          Can I have a pie and a bridie and an onion as well?

          Is that right? :-)

            Well done Judith. Please note when visiting the city of Dundee, the land of cundies, pletties and schemies, the word pie is prounounced peh.

            I, when referring to self, is pronounced eh, as in 'ell hae a peh'
