Robbie Burns Joke
(read at your own risk)
Tony Blair is being shown
around an Ayr hospital.
Towards the end of his visit,
he is taken onto a ward of
people with no
obvious signs of injury.
He greets the first patient and
the chap replies:
"Fair fa' you honest sonsie face,
Great Chieftain e' the puddin'
race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your
place,
Painch, tripe, or thaim,
Weel are ye Wordy o'a grace,
As lang's my arm."

Tony, being somewhat
confused, just grins, moves on
to the next patient
and greets him.
He replies:
"Some hae meat, and canna eat,
And some hae nane that want
it,
But we hae meat and we can
eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit."

Even more confused, but trying
not to show it, Tony moves on
to the third
patient who immediately
begins to declaim,
"Wee sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous
beastie,
O, what a panic's in thy
breastie!
Thou need na start awa sae
hasty,
Wi bickering brattle!"

Alarmed, Tony turns to the
doctor accompanying him and
demands an
explanation: "What sort of
ward is this, a mental ward?"
"No", replies the doctor. "This
is the Serious Burns Unit."
Robbie Burns Night
It only happens once a year - the Gaslight tribute to the bard of
Scotland, Robert Burns.  The  haggis was carried out, pints of
strong ale were consumed, and the bagpipes played.

This years celebration  was highlighted by the dedication of the
traditional toast of scotch to Professor John Sweeney who is
recovering from an automobile accident. Standing in for the
Professor at the reading of several Burns' poems was the
Draughtboard 15's own Brian Lynch who read the words of the
bard as if inhabited by the spirit of the man himself.
