January 25th....
« on: 22/01/2009 08:25:37 »
A visitor was being taken around the local hospital, and was walking through a ward, when he came across a patient lying in bed. The patient was sitting up comfortably, and was saying

"O stay, sweet warbling woodlark, stay,
Nor quit for me the trembling spray,
A hapless lover courts thy lay,
Thy soothing, fond complaining..."

Moving on to the second bed, there was another patient, doing a similar thing

"And I'll kiss thee yet, yet,
And I'll kiss thee o'er again:
And I'll kiss thee yet, yet,
My bonie Peggy Alison."

And a third...

"Bannocks o' bear meal,
Bannocks o' barley,
Here's to the Highlandman's
Bannocks o' barley!"

When asked by the visitor what was occurring, the doctor replied "Oh, don't worry. It's the Burns Unit."

Jan 25th is the day on which the Scots celebrate their greatest poet, Robert Burns. Thank heavens there isn't a McGonagle night!

Burns was a great poet, McGonagle was, to put it politely, not a great poet.

I'd prefer a night to celebrate the mean old power station boss, Montgomary Burns, from The Simpsons.

Wasn't that top joke voted the Best joke of the year 2000?

No seriously, it was done by a news paper. They got lots of people to send in their best jokes and then the top ones were voted on. This one came out top.

January 25th is also Australia Day.  In most states fireworks are illegal, so we celebrate the birth of our nation by watching the professionals blow up a small part of it.

I notice they are selling haggis in M&S in a plastic outer rather than some sheeps gut or bladder or whatever they wrap it in.
