Scottish Humour.

Weegies v EdinbuggersWeegies v Edinbuggers: Why Glasgow Smiles Better than Edinburgh or Why Edinburgh is Slightly Superior to Glasgow There's a slogan that Glaswegians use when talking about Edinburgh's world-famous joie de vivre: 'Edinburgh! A castle, a smile and a song One out of three isn't bad.' Edinburghers retaliate by talking of why all the Wise Men come from the East and all the cowboys from the West. So we have the Far East, the Wild West and an apparently unbridgeable gulf in between, usually called Falkirk. These are the jokes, the songs and the stories of why citizens of these two great cities would rather take Osama bin Laden home for tea than a Weegie or an Edinbugger, citizens of no mean cities though they be. Except, of course, traditionally, there is no request to tea in Edinburgh, more of a statement delivered without a question mark, as in 'You'll have had your tea.' And 'pal' is the unfriendliest word there is in Glasgow. When a Glaswegian asks, 'Ur you lookin' at me, pal?', you would be very naive indeed to think of it as a question or that the deliverer is intent on making friends. It is, in fact, a statement meaning something like, 'Unless you come up with a smart reply sharpish, I'm going to attempt to remove your head from your shoulders with any weapon that comes to hand. Or my teeth.' There's nothing rational about it. Weegies know that all Edinburghers are just poncing about all day pretending to be flowers and waiting for dark to get up Calton Hill because, without exception, they like their vice versa. And Edinbuggers know that, in Weegie families, father, mother and sister often don't add up to three, but that they do keep their chibs sharp, whatever a chib might be. There are hard hits from both sides, sharp jibes and bludgeoning diatribes, but it's just friendly rivalry really. To use the double positive negative, a figure of speech unique to Scotland, 'Aye, right.'

Answering the questions that tourists really want to ask about Scotland and the weird and wonderful things Scots get up to, the book covers subjects as diverse as "Trainspotting" and the weather, licensing laws and the honours system, cultural identity and bus shelters. Intended as an irreverent and entertaining guide to the country, the book is not approved by VisitScotland!

Astonishing ScotlandAstonishing Scotland!: Pass the Bunnet Astonishing Scotland. Rank villains, cludgie humour, mankie women, famous gubbings, men in skirts, sadists, balloons and assorted bampots, sex, drugs and illicit lute playing. They're all in Jim Hewitson's latest foray along the scarred underbelly of Scottish history. Astonishing Scotland! is a cheeky thesaurus of Scottishness, an A-Z of Caledonian myth and mischief, a glimpse at the DNA of nationality. And on this individualistic journey, you'll find a multitude of off-beat anecdotes from the history of our great, if somewhat confused, nation. Where exactly did James IV go wrong at Flodden? Should Dundee United be playing with a flat back four? Which Scottish castle can claim the nation's most spectacular thunderbox? And did wearing a bunnet during sex really ensure you produced a male child? Trawling the sometimes murky, often illuminating but always fascinating backwaters of Scotland's story, you'll encounter the bizarre, the memorable, even the rude. So if you thought that Scottish history was as heavy as a pot of stale porridge, then prepare to be Astonished! Scottish Humour.

Brimster TalesBrimster Tales Brimster is so far off the beaten track that news of what happens there hardly ever makes it to the pages of the Scottish press. Then one day some unkind soul makes public a photograph of Brimster's hard-working, long-serving councillor, Magnus Stroup, taken during a fact-finding mission to Amsterdam. This, however, is only one of the odd things that take place in this far-flung rural Caithness community. For example, what is the explanation of the boot still containing a human foot that is found in a wheelie bin? And how does Miss Sarah Job's cat uncover the suave Mr Clove's secret? And how did a hay bale cause serious injury to a young crofter? And did Owld Toftie really leave behind a fortune to his warring descendants - and can Sinclair Cattach find it first? And what is the secret of the Holy Well? For answers to these and many more questions you never thought to ask, read The Brimster Saga. This is the first appearance in book form of a popular long-running serial from the Caithness weekly paper, the John o'Groat Journal.

The Vital Spark: The Illustrated Para... The Vital Spark, Para Handy.

Scottish Humour.

Jimmy SwanJimmy Swan (Birlinn Historical Guides) There are small paraffin-oil-lamp towns in many parts of the country for which Mr Swan is Fairy Godmother, perpetual Grand Plenipotentiary, and Deputy Providence. Half of his time in Glasgow is taken up with the execution of countless petty commissions for his rural customers and their friends, the selection and purchase of goods quite out of his drapery line. Jimmy Swan, the enigmatic commercial traveller, is another classic comic character from the pen of Neil Munro, the master Scottish humorist. The result of Swan's experiences is a wonderfully entertaining collection, allowing the reader a marvellous insight into daily life in the West of Scotland at the turn of the century. Each story is brimful of local and period detail and the editors have provided a full set of notes explaining those historical, cultural, biographical, linguistic and geographical references which may not be obvious to the twenty-first century reader - but which would have been very familiar from the news pages of their daily papers to the early twentieth-century reader. In addition a full introduction is given, setting these Glasgow tales in their context and providing information about their author, Neil Munro. Scottish Humour.

The Vicious Vikings (Horrible Histories... Packed with frightening facts about the vile Viking invaders and their Saxon enemies, this book takes a look at history - with the nasty bits left in.

Bud Neills MagicBud Neill's Magic!: A Collection of Bud Neill's Pocket Cartoons In this book, Bud Neill, armed only with paper, pen, lamp black ink, a laser wit and a healthy regard for the absurd, encapsulates the west of Scotland''s culture as no cartoonist has done before. Scottish Humour.

So, back by popular demand is a new edition, complete with yet more of Scotland's funniest football songs and chants. And it's still as sharp as ever and just as non-PC. Scottish Humour.

The CrackThe Crack: The Best of Glasgow Humour The shortsighted lady in the baker's shop was peering at the display of cakes under the glass. 'Tell me, dear,' she asked the girl at the counter, pointing at one confection in particular, 'I've come out without my glasses. Is that a doughnut or a meringue?' 'Naw, you're absolutely right, missis. It's a doughnut OK' What do you call an illegitimate insect? A fly bastart Why wasn't Jesus born in Glasgow? They couldn't find a virgin or three wise men As this book amply demonstrates, humour is one of the cornerstones of Glasgow life. A look at the history of popular entertainment in the city shows that Glasgow has always enjoyed a good laugh, and the home-grown variety best of all. Professional comedians often shared the same background as their audiences, and the drawbacks of tenement life provided a rich source of comic potential which was tapped by many of Glasgow's best-known comics. In this new and expanded edition of his best-selling book, Michael Munro has produced a hilarious compendium of the wit and wisdom of Glasgow. While many of the jokes and stories are 'classics' that continue to amuse today, either in their original form or updated to reflect contemporary tastes and preoccupations, The Crack also includes a huge amount of material that will be new to many. As this hilarious collection shows, no subject, sacred or profane, is safe from scrutiny and the Glasgow tongue respects no bounds of taste.

The Rotten Romans (Horrible Histories S.) Follows life for folks in Roman Britain from Nero to Boudicca and includes a look at gory games, rotten recipes, and loads of frightening facts.
