Scot Wit, Humor and Humour

A case can be made that you can learn the character of a Nation and its people from its humour; Scotland and the Scots are no exception. From this St Andrew's Day (2002) we are starting a new item in the Scots Language Feature of a baur (joke) every week which you will be able to read and to listen to. We hope to disprove the infamous charge made many years ago by Canon Sydney Smith that "it requires a surgical operation to get a joke into a Scotch understanding" and that you will enjoy the wit of Scotland. Each joke is also recorded in RealAudio for you to listen to as well.
