the haggis


A cine film made around 1969 by the Largs Cine Club. Starring Dram the Dog. Plot may be B- but scenery and music B+.

Tomorrow is Burns Night (the celebration of Robert Burns' poetry, excuse to eat haggis etc.) Wrote a bunch about it last year (Haggis; Kilt).

Heard t'other day that the USA has lifted the embargo on haggis (& other meat goods from the UK) dating back the BSE/V-CJD scare...

@D; classic... mum had to bin her haggis at US customs in 2009... terrible. all about the lung, i guess... it is just meatloaf fer fks sake... thx for the info.

@D also; the veggie haggis is great. just herbed oatmeal really but you bake it and cover w/ mushroom gravy or something... not ata ll bad.
