[Loch-Ruadh] So, how was the Wake?

I would like to know who started this nasty rumor about the Scots, anyway?
As anyone who reads knows, the Scots did not have sheep until the stinking
English set about to make the world safe for sheep.  The Scots ate the red
deer and highland cattle.  The Irish and the Scots get along tolerably well,
the Scots and the French have "the auld alliance" against the English.  The
Spanish have always despised the English.  The Welsh and the Cornish have no
love lost for the English.  Why can't everyone quit picking on the Scots,
and pick on the English, who deserve it more, for a change?  I say down with
the sheep-loving English!

Norman in lowland Scotland since 1220!

I've not ever noticed that the consumption of Guinness, Irish whiskey,
Scotch or even the one time I indulged in Bioharzard made me in any way
regard sheep as anything more than sources of wool and/or meat for roasting
and stewing.  It would take a lot more than alcohol to make me take up the
less savory habits of my Scottish cousins (such as eating haggis, and other
predilictions that shouldn't be mentioned on an open list).  :)
