Awae with ye laddie! The haggis simmers in the Aga next to the neeps and tatties. Soon my very own Rabbie will stagger home to the merry chimes of the bagpipes and I'll be phoning for a Chinese takeaway.

Do you KNOW what's in a haggis?! Pass the single malt ... there'll be murrrrder here tonight.

Aye, lassie, I'll be attending a Burns Night Supper down the road tomorrow night!
And a Whisky Tasting!
I'm partial to the Islay malts myself.
Haggis? I do know what's in it - and I love it!

Anyone know a suitable Bradbury-related title for a birthday and other "party" themed thread?

dandelion, all I can come up with is:

"Come, and Bring Constance!"...from The Toynbee Convector

"Eat, Drink and Be Wary"...published in Astounding Science Ficiton (July 1942)

"The Gift"...in A Medicine for Melancholy and elsewhere

Once again, I reiterate, you can always depend on Phil for any Bradbury-related thingy!

A walking, talking (with English accent, yet!) Bradbury encyclopaedia!

Your education was worth every pence!

Aw, shucks, thanks chaps. And thanks, Spaulding old chap, for not saying: "Ficiton is a good word!" (As in Astounding Science Ficiton.)

But "ficiton" is a good word, Phil. Try googling it - 5,800 people can't be wrong!

Apple is a good word. It plays upon the lips!

Just watched this one with the scruffs. We replayed this very scene for its satirical genius and word play. (Yeah...it was funny, too!)

Great mustache!

Yes - funny man. And still hilarious in his later years.
