I ate haggis.

I also read poetry to haggis.

Haggis is actually far more tasty than you'd expect.

EDIT to add:
The fact I provided you with a link is not an invitation to link me to either Elliot Smith or Madeline Peyroux's version of what is frankly the saddest song I have ever heard.
  • But what's the texture like?
    • Imagine what'd come of making a meaty oatmeal: it's pretty much that. See, you don't eat the actual stomach of the sheep- you eat what was stuffed into it and hit the oven.

      Honestly, the haggis I ate was less 'here are the unavailably edible portions of the beast' and more 'here's lamb, ground up and mixed with grain, cooked in a tight confine'. So it's possible that 'proper' haggis is not quite so delicious.

      Edit: to make it clearer what portion of a haggis is eaten.

  • Where was this?
  • I've had tolerable haggis in Scotland; it seemed like I really ought to try it, and I can see how it might be tasty if done nicely.

    But every time it's mentioned I can't help but think of a friend of mine who went to St Andrews girls' boarding school, and said the food there was just the awfullest awful thing she'd ever had. Take British school dinners, multiply by Scotland's national hatred of food, then - they served vegetarian haggis.

    Nobody knew what it was, or what the hell it was supposed to be, and nobody dared try it.

    there's your reminder of spelling, git.
  • I muttlaughed because i read your thoughts on haggis and then i read... "The fact I threw up..."

    But only realized seconds later the throwing up had nothing to do with haggis.
  • When I started to read, "The fact I threw up.." I thought for a moment you really HAD thrown up, yikes!
  • Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!

    Was this the poem you read?
