Super new format. I nearly thought it was a copy of the first edition of the Hootsmon. Until I stuck the magnifying glass on of course.Artistic licence Conan. That's the excuse all writers use isn't it.
Yer nuts but, supremely funny and inventive.
Ha, ha, ha - excellent stuff again. You are clearly getting out from under the roof leaks!
Thanks Rosa, It's my excuse and I shall stick to it.Bugger, the Hootsmon is like having a steering wheel in my groin-it's driving me nuts.Most of the work's done now Dram, only the bathroom left.
That, Conan, has to be the best ever... and that's saying something.6/5!
"A Scotch rabble is the very worst kind. For every one for there are 99 against."Now if the "Scotch" will just remember who they are, Scotland might get somewhere--like being a country in its own right instead of the tag end of Merry Old England. *ahem* Maybe I should leave now while I'm still able.
Very nice dugs; and I don't say that to all the girls :)Veitchy
There is a fifty year gap between the Act of Union and Deacon Brodie. Get a grip!I suspect this Hootsmon is a fake - there is no "accused" in the head-line!John the Pedant IV
Hmmmph! Lazy (appropriate Scottish expletive)!He's spending time with the grand-weans instead of posting something amusing for us! It's not to be tolerated. Someone report him to the Madaxe.
Welcome Veitchy. John the Pedant; well it's actually sixty-one...Jeanne, always wanting attention, needing their nappy changed, they're hard work, Niko and Brownlie...
Don't be so bloody pedantic, Conan, if there's one thing I hate it's pedants.
Me too, John. Er, shouldn't there be some sort of punctuation between "hate" and "it's", and should not there be a point after Conan and a new sentence at "If"?But I have to say, I agree with the main thrust of your argument. There's nothing so irritating as a pedant, unless of course it's Richard Baker, or what's his name Green, no, Gray.
I say "old chap" when are we getting new old post?
Welcome Snooty. As Jeanne says.
I have a black and whitish physiog, Old Bean.Toodle pip
