Subject: RE: BS: Beware the Killer Haggis!
Scots cuisine is basically desigend to get at the English. We English have a perfectly respectable offal-based dish called the faggot (No sniggering from across the pond, please), which is very similar in flavour, texture and composition, but which is safe to eat. We eat porridge made from oats, which is pleasantly runny, and which we enhance with milk and sugar; the Scots make and pour it into a drawer, for heaven's sake, where it sets it like silicone rubber, so they have to cut it up with a knife, and then they can put enough in their sporrans to save them having to eat proper--English--food until they get back from stealing our cattle.
