Southern hospitality with a taste of Scotch

Went to my first Highland Games this weekend. Picked up a few tidbits:

  • When wearing a kilt, one should have a Sgian Dubh (skan-due)--a black, or hidden, knife--tucked into the top of one's hose.
  • Large Irish men can flip a telephone pole in the air.
  • You canny shove your granny off the bus (well, your maternal granny, anyway), if the Scottish tune is to be believed.
