Thread Name: Translation from Scots req'd
Subject: RE: Translation from Scots req'd
I wouldn't worry about it. It a joke verse meant to confuse an Englishman (see verse one). The first line literally translated means 'if perhaps (someone) writes gossip/garbage'.
The second line is gramatically incorrect and should read A daimen-icker in a thrave, i.e. a random ear of corn in a bundle/stook (from Burns' To a Mouse) and the next two lines I wuld translate as 'masturbation'!
The rest really means Everything is gone to hell so you can to, i.e. fuck off.
Rather sad, but the point is you don't understand the Scottish language .... crudely made.
