Old playground song that kids sang

the dirty wee buggers are farting like hell


Seriously, they did, especially the girls as they played picky beds.

Ahh...Clan Gordon...the Earls of Huntly, from up north.  My Chief's wife was a Gordon.

The hated Campbells (as we know them) were the lackeys of the British for most of late-Scottish history.  Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyle, as a radical Covenantor, turned against the Scots during the English Civil War, and was never again accepted back.

The verse you just quoted, Irn, is typical of the lov we West Islanders have for 'em.

Cool

MY family surname 'belongs' to Clan Gordon as well   !!!

Although an Internet search for the family name also turns up it's own clan connection, the current Scottish Laird and his castle as well, and their own Tartans, whiskey and associated businesses ~ presumably some sort of "sub clan" or affiliation to Clan Gordon, I take it ?

WHICH is all a long way away now, after some 200+ years separation..
Just another passing chapter in the Family history...

It's unique eddie. Sort of like red kola and coca cola maybe. It's a secret.

Buy a wee bottle at the shops next time. Only a few bob.

Aye Quill, the Cambell's were considered traitors for their attack on the McDonalds at Glencoe. Not the McDonalds burger outlet that is

Clan BRU, hailing from deepest darkest Falkirk, are amongst the most noble clanspeople to walk the earth. Known for their abundance of girders and love o’ ‘the ginger’ they’re the original and best. Membership is greatly sought after!

I always knew some Scottish soft drink that isn't sold in my country could bolster my self-esteem and sense of uniqueity.

THERE are also several supermarkets around here (in the Lower Hunter region..) that are supposed to stock it as well. Though I haven't tried it - as yet..


I have seen a couple of Irn Bru ad's online before, where they have claimed that the orange colour supposedly comes from the rusty water that they use it's its manufacture !

its not an orange flavor

think cough syrup (the horrid tasting kind) mixed with liquid bubblegum that leaves a yucky feeling and aftertaste in your mouth.

^Ben......you can buy it over here but its rather difficult to get hold of.....thank God....cause its expensive and id be broke what with Mr. C and the juniors loving the icky stuff
