An English doctor is being shown around a Scottish hospital. At the end of his visit, he is shown into a ward with a number of patients who show no obvious signs of injury. He goes to examine the first patient he sees, and the man proclaims:

"Fair fa' yer honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o' the puddin' race!"

The English doctor, somewhat taken aback, goes to the next patient, and immediately the patient launches into:

"Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it."

This continues with the next patient:

"Wee sleekit cow'rin tim'rous beastie, O what a panic's in thy breastie!"

"Well," the English doctor mutters to his Scottish colleague, "I see you saved the psychiatric ward for the last."

"Oh no," the Scottish doctor corrected him, "this is the serious Burns unit

Best wishes to all of our Scottish friends. Hope you have a great evening despite the current circumstances.

Slainte mhath.

Thank you Giles. Listening to a local radio station at breakfast this morning, they had a "True or False" (or aye or naw in the vernacular) question which was - Michael Jackson's song "Thriller" was as a result of Jackson's love of Burns and "Tam-o-Shanter" in particular.
87% of people said false. The 13% who said true were correct! I'm sure that the world will be a better place for knowing that! wine

I bought one of those space going Haggis' at Tesco today. I hope despite the food miles it will taste good.
Though I am worried it could be a Suffolk mutation

I don’t suppose they have sent all of their haggis into space, John.

I went to a reading of Scottish poetry last night. It was pretty bad, I ended up with third degree Burns.

I wouldn't think so Giles, they produce 120 tonnes per week. Every week of the year eat

Yes the haggis is in the oven
Neeps and tatties prepped and on the stove
I’m going for a whisky sauce with Jura this year and I’m going with a slight variant on the tatties with some spring onions mashed in
