Have a Drink

The scene was the lounge of an Aberdeen hotel, and a party of English commercial travellers, were airing their views about the meaness of the Scot. At last, with the intention of giving colour to his opinions, the leader of the group approached an Aberdonian at the adjoining table with the question :-

    "Can you tell me the difference between an Aberdonian and a cocoanut?"
With a hint of steel in his eye, the Aberdonian quietly shook his head.
    "Well" said the Englishman "you can get a drink out of a cocoanut."
All round guffaws followed.
    "No bad man, no bad" replied the Scot, nettled but still smiling. "And cuid ye dae wi a drink nou?"
Thinking that he had goaded the Scot into unwonted generosity, the Englishman at once replied :-
    "Yes, thanks, I do need a drink."
    "Weill" was the crisp reply "awa an buy yer-sel a cocoanut!"
