Subject: 'Hateful' Haggis
From: Fiolar

A Scottish lady who has lived in England for 34 years has had a haggis thrown through her window in what police are calling a "hate crime." The item was found in the front room of the woman's home in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. A police spokesman said the incident was being treated as a "hate crime" and that the haggis was being examined. Funny, yobbs who throw things usually use stones rather than buying consumable items. Seems a waste of a perfectly good haggis to me.

I hope it was a fresh haggis and not a tinned one which would have done a lot of damage! Seriously though, this is rather sinister and I hope it doesn't stir up the same sort of nonsense that the English in Scotland and Wales have had to put up with, although as I mentioned in another thread, there does seem to be a rising tide of English nationalism since the Scottish parliament was reconvened , along with the new Welsh assembly.

Terrible waste of Haggis.

***"Nationalism"is not the same as "Cultural pride".***

(Ya heard it here first folks!)

Vive la difference, as the filthy french would say.

Cheers,

Well as long as it wasn't a live haggis, or they would get complaints from the RSPCA too....

My first thought was that all haggis is hateful, but the issue raised here is a serious one indeed. Sadly, I doubt that any country or culture is free of the kinds of low lifes that perpetrate such bigotry. If I could pass sentence on these particular *** , it would to thirty days on haggis and water.

Though I'm an anglo-saxon-ish I enjoy haggis occasionally.The householder should have retaliated by throwing those "English" yob staples back (chicken tikka and Foster's lager).

And the thread name game put this one right above "things that make you go mmmmmmm" - nice juxtaposition. Juxtoposition? They both look wrong now. Anyway, I've never tried haggis, but it actually sounds like I would like it, given my oral history, ha ha. But people shouldn't be throwing things through other people's windows, whether storeboughten (as they say down here) or not...

LIve hagis are actually pretty resilient and tough you know... well the wild ones are. Domesticated haggis are susceptible to ailments like throsk and menstrie.

But the wild or feral haggis is a pretty hardwearing wee beastie...

I'm not surprised it'd go straight through a window.

Scabby Doug, what is the plural of Haggis? Is it like sheep and deer or should it be Haggi? Anyway from the pictures I've seen of the feral haggis, it's not very aerodynamic and you'd have to be careful which way up you hold it before you hurl ans those teeth could give you a nasty wee nip

absolutely.. ferocious wee shites..

I've had many a nip from a badly-handled haggis in my time.

I usually refer to them like sheep - 1 sheep, 2 sheep etc...

the collective noun for haggiseses is a clanjamfrie (when there are less than 50) Over 50 is a gallimaufry...

Hope it helps

Are the authorities sure that this wasn't a mutant haggis - maybe one who could fly or at least glide like a flying squirell?

It happens all the time to the English in both Scotland and Wales. Trouble is it never gets reported, or even noticed until the window cleaner comes, because neither roast beef or chicken korma can break windows!

Perhaps the perpetrators (sp?) were merely in training for the annual black pudding hurling championships just down the road in Bury and got it a bit wrong?

Cheers

Dave the Gnome, who used to work in Rochdale and wander the moors above it at weekends. Never saw a migrant haggis there but spotted many a shy and furtive wild black pud....
