Regular visitors to the Vulture Central Mailbag know how fond we at the Reg are of English in all its varied and splendid forms. It is with great pleasure, then, that we are able to share this choice cut of the lingo from our neighbouring midge-infested oil platform, Scotland.

Oi ya bunch o dobbers, we glesca folk dinnae eat deep fried mars bars aww the time, jist fer special occasions, like ma wee britney bein born and my brother gettin' aff wi just sum community service fur slashin' that wideo prick that shagged is bird. Fuckin' minto it was, that cunt didnae know what hit him.
