Just saw what USA calls the end of Braveheart. Cut to credits after the first volley of archers from the fargin’ Brits (no offense to present day English)? Not bare assed mooning? No death on the rack whilst proclaiming the Scot Freedom? Who the fuck whitewashed THIS movie? They left TONS on the cutting room floor, the meat of the movie, the guts of the heroism, the ass of a thousand Highlanders (an one Mick). I express my outrage at those bungholes who PC’ed that great movie to Disney-like bullshit.
That is my opinion, anyway, anyone else feel cheated by this travesty of television? I am a Douglas. Fear my wrath.
Sit your Scottish ass down.
Put your Scottish whiskey down.
Pick up your TV guide.
Stare at tomorows listings until words become intelligible.
Laugh, retrieve whiskey, drink to posts which cannot be retrieved.
Ahh, ye Irish lassie, perhaps the Gaelic interferes with yer English! I said “Scottish”, I am not a Scot, I am Irish, yet not an “Irishman”. I am from Douglas (Scotland), Deegan (Ireland), Murray (Ireland), and Donnelly (Ireland). I meself am American, Hawaiian, if you want to be specific. I am 25% Scot, 75% Irish. I’d kick yer arse (if you were a man) and have a pint at the same time! I am a Douglas, a Murray, a Deegan, and a Donnelly.

Interestingly enough, I read a newspaper article yesterday about the British elections which mentioned that there would be a number of “Irish and British-born Irish” voting in them. That’s the first time I’ve seen that usage over here that involved white people (it’s quite common, of course, to hear “Pakistanis” referred to as such even if they were born in Britain).
Hey Twisty, when I get my passport, do I get to call myself “Irish”?
