    Another golden (?) oldie

    Tony Blair is visiting an Edinburgh hospital.

    He enters a ward full of patients with no obvious sign of injury or illness.

    He greets the first patient and the patient replies:
    "Fair fa your honest sonsie face,
    Great chieftain o' the puddin race,
    Aboon them a you take your place,
    Painch, tripe or thairm, As langs my airm."

    Tony is confused, so he just grins and moves on to the next patient and greets him.

    The patient responds:
    "Some hae meat and canna eat,
    And some wad eat that want it,
    But we hae meat and we can eat,
    So let the Lord be thankit."

    Even more confused, but trying not to show it, Tony moves on to the next patient, who immediately begins to chant:

    "We sleekit, cowerin, timrous beasty,
    Thou needna start awa sae hastie,
    Wi bickering brattle."

    Now alarmed, Tony turns to the accompanying doctor and asks
    "What kind of facility is this? Is it a mental ward?" "No", replies the doctor. "This is the serious Burns Unit".
