Thanks for posting this at suppertime.
“Ye Pow’rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o’ fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer
Gie her a haggis!”
“Address to a Haggis” (concluding lines), Robert Burns, 1786
…skinkin ware = watery soup, jaups = slops about, luggies = two-handled continental bowls. Burns supper @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burns_supper )
Just wanted to note I really appreciate folks posting updates.
