Cartoons / Are You Scottish ? / A Video Funny !




Hi Folks,
The post today is mainly for the inhabitants of a small country which is part of Great Britain and shows whether readers of this blog 'are or could be' part Scottish - mind you we are only too willing to accept folk who haven't been born or bred in this 'God's own Country' - In actual fact there must be thousands of people who have had Scottish ancestry by the looks of the history books 'cos we Scots folk got everywhere - hehehehe...

Anyway to get back to the subject, here this is a list of ' Pure dead giveaways that you are Scottish in some way or other ...... and you can be sure that we will welcome you here to this land - especially as this year is the 'Year of Scottish Homecoming'.

The odds against reaching earth,
Are ninety nine tae wan.
