Haggis Not Scottish???

Haggis, in all its glory.

Haggis, in all its glory.

According to a Reuters news story released today, Historian Catherine Brown claims that haggis, the legendary and gag-inducing Scottish delicacy, is actually not Scottish but English.


Haggis purists shouldn’t worry too much about the Scots’ patriotic claim on haggis getting snatched away; as former world champion haggis maker Robert Patrick insisted: “Nobody’s going to believe it.”

What’s next? Welsh rabbit isn’t really made from rabbit?

    Yeah well, corned beef and cabbage isn’t Irish but that doesn’t stop everyone from eating it on St. Patrick’s Day.

    Nah, it doesn’t matter.

    And ugg…haggis. Ick.

    It’s Welsh Rarebit. Doofus. And coming from a Scot that says it all about you.

    Haggis is not “gag inducing” at all. It contains nothing worse than what you will find in your typical English mutton pie or cheap supermarket sausage.

    Grow up.

    Yes the English will claim our delicacy as theirs the same way they plunder Scottish North Sea oil and sell it back to us jocks with English taxes added to it.

      Thank you for your biting and insightful criticism. Perhaps I should send you a copy of my latest book, “It’s a Joke: a Primer for People who Have No Sense of Humor and Take Themselves Way Too Seriously”.

      As far as haggis goes, one man’s trash is another man’s delicacy.
