I am half-Scots mongrel meself, but I took the trouble to wear underwear on my wedding day. But I did not wear kilt, so I suppose it wouldn't have made much difference. Funny nonetheless.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqgkZDbe4Xk
Perhaps this proves definitively that marriage is a means to an end?
Kilt is a funny dress anyway. It looks like a skirt. I always laugh when I see one. Poor bride.:)
Lorne, shame on you, shame. LD, you're from Nova Scotia. Those are fighting words in Nova Scotia.Anon, do you think the referendum will pass this year?
Mound, Scottish people are very nice folks and I had co-workers and good friends. I used to tease them about kilt and they understood that it was not malicious.
LeDaro.....they are not ever Scottish but Scotts. My son-in-law raised, educated and employed in Scotland always laughs when he hears anyone calling Scotts Scottish.
Actually "Scottish" is quite proper to describe citizens of Scotland. The Scots were one tribe from that land. Don't forget they derived from Picts and Gaels and Norns. They spent half their time raiding each other. The term Scots object to is "Scotch."
The groom did provide an additional definition of the term 'trainspotting'.
Anon, I don't know what to say, how to reply. I can't really blame you after I put this out there but you're really, really, really gross. Thanks.
I agree with Mound. I always used the term Scottish and they never corrected me. These are the folks (some of them) who are first generation immigrants. They should know and correct me.
8:41 That depends on where a person is on the scale of society and education so says son-in-law. It is doubtful if most Canadians know the good people of Scotland do not like being called Scottish even if they derived from Picks, Gaels and Norse centuries ago.
The people of Scotland refer to themselves as "Scottish". They do not take offence to being called Scottish.You could call them Scots, but it wouldn't be the norm and how you refer to them certainly does not depend on their position "on the scale of society and education" other than usual titles such as Dr, Prof etc.Scott is a first name and so the only time it's use is appropriate is when the person is called Scott. Calling anyone else Scott, or "a Scott" would be silly.As an Irish person who lived, worked and was educated in Scotland for 5 years, I have to say your son in law was either pulling your leg, or full of shite.
