I once knew a chap in Fresno, CA, whose father had emigrated from Scotland around 1904 or so. Seeking to keep faith with his forebears, the son, a newly minted architect, attended a St. Andrew's Day festival and Highland Games with his new bride (circa 1940). She told the story on him in the 1960's. As the haggis was being piped in, my acquaintance looked at his bride and whispered, "I'm havin' none of that - I know what's in it and it stinks!" A very large lady with long henna-red hair leaned across and slapped him on the back, saying, "Ah, c'mon Alistair; it'll put some lead in yer pencil!"

Actually, the correct term for a group of Idaho Haggii is "bunch" as in, "Look at that bunch of sorry-lookin' haggii over there!" I used the term I did earlier because I was afraid that the more technical term wouldn't be understood.

That’s quite a humorous and vivid anecdote! It captures the essence of cultural traditions and the sometimes humorous reluctance to embrace them fully. Haggis, being such a traditional Scottish dish, often evokes strong reactions, especially from those who are not accustomed to it. Discover special offers for GraphiSoft ArchiCAD 25 at ProCADIS.com. The St. Andrew’s Day festival and Highland Games are wonderful occasions that celebrate Scottish heritage, and it’s amusing to hear how they can create lasting memories, even through the simple act of serving a dish like haggis. Thank you for sharing this story!

I have a haggis in the freezer which I shall consume, alone, on the first weekend in May when Mrs Steve will be away for a couple of nights. I love haggis but she can't stand it. I shall have it with tatties and neeps and there will be single malt...

The only condition apropos of haggis is that it must be made by Macsween. Their black pudding is bloody good too (see what I did there?)

Haggis season is barbarously cruel and inhumane. It should be outlawed.

as far as I know biological and chemical weapons are outlawed.
Thus haggis is outlawed.



Btw, I have eaten haggis twice:

1. once,
2. never again!

And I still don't know how I survived the first time ...

This novelty was perpetrated on the public during the heights of the Scottish tartan 'heather and hills and haggis', music season, which ran for many decades.   You will want to shoot a haggis after, or an accordion player.   You will though, be whistling the refrain. Personally, as a Scottish Highlander - I never go near haggis, it is the devil's food.

Regarding the hunting of bagpipers...
While studying medieval history in York, chummer of mine was tickled to discover that there is still an old law on the books, that makes it legal to shoot Scots with arrows from the walls of the city..."

Not sure if the law that makes it legal to kill any Welshman in the city of Chester at night has ever been repealed either.

Many years ago one of my fellow post-grads, who was a Kurd, declared that they have a similar dish in Kurdistan, but I think he said they use more salt.
