Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Prince Charles is visiting an Edinburgh hospital. He enters a ward full of patients with no obvious sign of injury or illness and greets one.

The patient replies:

"Fair fa your honest sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin race,
Aboon them a ye take yer place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
As langs my airm."

Charles is confused, so he just grins and moves on to the next patient. The patient responds:

"Some hae meat an canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat an we can eat,
So let the Lord be thankit."

Even more confused, and his grin now rictus-like, the Prince moves on to the next patient, who immediately begins to chant:

"Wee sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,
Wha' sich a panic in thy breastie,
Thou needna start awa sae hastie,
Wi bickering brattle."

Now seriously troubled, Charles turns to the accompanying doctor and asks "Is this a psychiatric ward?"

"No," replies the doctor, "this is the serious Burns unit."


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Why does that joke remind me of the Monty Python sketch "The Hospital For Over-Actors"?

That was exceptionally funny - especially for someone whose wife was born in Scotland.

Obviously I forwarded it to the wife and brother-in-law.

Funny and two weeks ago it might have been quite topical too!
This could potentiallly spark some of the 'there's an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman' jokes.. I'll contact my brother to get some...

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

My father was born in Scotland and told me there were more statues erected to honor Robert than Jesus. I don't know the truth about that, but I think Rabbie would smile for sure at Andz's thread-starter. Smiles...jack

No matter how often I hear that joke, it always makes me laugh - it's just the pure simplicity of it.

In other news I see the Scottish flag has been returned to it's rightful place, and not before time.

Presumably you have no Scottish connections, hence ........



Statistically, people who have had the most birthdays tend to live the longest.
