What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger.
I think I'd "scotch" that doc's opinion
On the plus side, Johnny does have a brave heart.
Not that we're skirting the issue here...
Dr. Jarlsberg, Et Alii:Did you know that this past Sunday 06 April 2014 was NATIONAL TARTAN DAY, commemorating the signing of the "DECLARATION OF ARBROATH" in Arbroath, Scotland on 06 April 1320?You don't have to be Scottish to wear a tartan kilt and plaid, complete with full Highland regalia, for there are MANY authorized tartan designs.Each of our military services has its own tartan, as does police and firefighters.There are national tartans for Scotland, Canada, the United States of America, and the Confederate States of America.Also, each of our states has been authorized their own tartan.Thus, even if you have NO actual Scottish heritage (which in America, would be exceedingly RARE, due to Scottish immigration and influence throughout our history), if you desire to wear a kilt (and what REAL macho savage doesn't?), there are a wide variety of options for anyone desiring to wear a kilt.Oh, by the way, the kilt was actually invented by Norwegians, who brought it to Scotland from Norwegia.John Robert MallerneeClan Henderson"Sola Virtus Nobilitat"

@It's No Gouda- Actually, I "scotch" most doctor's opinions.@TrickyRicky- Somewhere, Mel Gibson is smiling...@Stan da Man- You're right, it's really an issue we should a dress.@John Robert Mallernee- Thanks for the interesting information! I have been to your site, and knew that you're no stranger to kilts, so I was looking forward to you seeing today's cartoon.As far as the cartoons you share (which I always appreciate!), I'd be the first to admit that some of them aren't quite family friendly, and others are pretty far out into "twilight zone" territory. Which isn't really my goal - but the cartoons usually just sort of present themselves to me and I write them down like a stenographer. Still, I think most of them aren't too offensive. Well, as long as Tickles the Clown isn't in them.And regarding the "Target" joke - ouch! (grin)
"THE SCOTSMAN"Well, a ScotsmanClad in kiltLeft a barOne evening fair,And one could tellBy how he walked,That he'd drunkMore than his share.He fumbled 'roundUntil he couldNo longer keep his feet,And he stumbled offInto the grass to sleepBeside the street.About that time,Two young and lovely girlsJust happend by.One says to the other,With a twinkle in her eye:"See yon sleeping Scotsman,So strong and handsome built?I wonder if it's trueWhat they don't wearBeneath the kilt!"They crept up onThat sleeping Scotsman,Quiet as could be;Lifted up his kiltAbout an inch,So that they could see.And there, behold,For them to viewBeneath his Scottish skirt,Was nothin' moreThan God had gracedHim with, upon his birth.They marvelled for a moment,Then one said:"We must be gone.Let's leave a presentFor our friendBefore we move along."As a gift, they leftA blue silk ribbonTied into a bow,Around the bonnie star,The Scotsman's kiltDid lift and show.Now, the Scotsman wokeTo nature's call,And stumbledTowards the trees.Behind the bush,He lifts his kilt,And gawks atWhat he sees.And in a startledVoice, he says,To what's before his eyes,"Oh, lad, I don't knowWhere ye been,But I see yeWon first prize!"ANONYMOUS
"AS OTHERS SEE US"First, there were the Scots,Who kept the Sabbath,And everything elseThey could get their hands on.Then, there were the Welsh,Who prayed on their knees,And preyed on their neighbors.Also, there were the Irish,Who didn't know what they wanted,But, were ready to fightFor it anyway.Finally, there were the English,Who consider themselvesA self-made people,Thus, relieving the AlmightyOf a dreadful responsibility!ANONYMOUS
