Scots wa hae…….. an Aussie apology, a photo opportunity, an ode and a funny man.

A friend posted the article from http://www.pedestrian.tv see original  here.

Its so fantastic I’ve added the two main photos they used below…………….

The first,  using our humorous Australian comedic answer to British pomposity and Australian crassness, Sir Les Paterson in his guise as the Australian High Commissioner in London…

Sir Les apologises for an Abbott

Followed by a classic shot from the movie I mentioned in one of yesterday’s posts on this blog -Hollywoods Mel Gibson movie, Braveheart.

The irreverence is priceless.

The Scots show the English their best side (A classic scene from the Mel Gibson movie -Braveheart depicting  the Scots opinion of the English.

And of course, feeling poetic I have added a little gem from myself………………..

 

ODE TO TOE KNEE A  BUTT (apologies to the Scots and Robbie Burns)

Would it that yer heed wa’ screwed

enough ta keep yer gub shut 1.

about the things ya dinna ken

across the werld in our wee glen

I’d not gi’ you the time o’ day

cos I dinnie ken ya 2,

*************

But cos  ye opened up yer gub

and belched a pile of boak 3.

me an’ the lads we took

a selfie fer yer folk

yer bum is out the windae 4.

yer words they made us choke

Awa’ an bile yer heid ye shite 5.

and think o’ us

 

………………………………………if ye sleep at night.

To help those who might need help with some translation:

1. your mouth shut

2. Because I don’t know you

3. burped a lot of vomit

4. You’re talking rubbish

5. go and boil your head you shit

Lucky Abbott’s not a golfer………………………RIP Robin Williams and special thanks for this laugh
