True tale - a Bloke at our local dog park, who speaks in the broadest Scots accent, has a doggie called Haggis. I haven't yet been able to decipher said Bloke's name, so I call him Haggis too: he doesn't seem to mind!

A dog called Haggis? Perhaps it is a Haggis.

A real treat is wild Haggis. One notable aspect of the creature is the legs on one side are shorter than the other. This helps the Haggis run at speed round the mountains in the highlands.

When studying at the Royal Military College of Science back on 1987, during one module syndicates visited various stands in the artillery shed, where servicemen explained the peculiar features of a particular artillery piece. At one stand, a Scottish Warrant Officer explained the intricacies of the in-service 105mm towed howitzer.
I had to concentrate intensely to understand what he was saying, and if I “lost sync”, had to wait until he started on a new topic before I could re-sync. In the meantime, he may as well have been speaking Mandarin.
