I haven't notices any Porcupines around either. So, there may be an effect there, as well?

There are so many old world remedies that have just been forgotton. Did you know that growing rhubarb in your garden keeps camels away? That works as well.

No, Haggis are an animal, whereas black pudding is an animal by-product

Oooh I dunno, there have been many sightings of feral black puddings roaming around rural Lincolnshire. Once they start breeding in the wild, that's it.

Got a Haggis whistle for a Christmas a few years back, good for luring wild Haggi down from the hills so they're easier to catch.

I nearly got bitten by a wild haggis once. It was a scary experience.

I just had my first icecream cake. We went around to fetch my son home from a birthday party and we were invited in for icecream cake.

I had previously been under the impression that these icecream cakes from dairy queen were actually cakes, but with icecream around them.

How wrong I was!!

Now I realise that icecream cakes are made solely from icecream!! There is no cake in icecream cakes what-so-ever!

Above or below the knee?

Were you wearing a kilt at the time?

Haggi sleep on Mondays, so you can go skirlling through the heather with a kilt on, wearing the right equipment, and come to no harm other than heather burns on your butt.

One has to be very careful on Mondays when tramping across the peat bogs where the Haggis sleep because if you happen to wake one it will get very upset, whereupon it will slowly, and inexorably pull you deeper into the bog. The only sound being you wailing for help and assistance.

Calling it "ice cream cake" could be viewed as a deception...or at the very least an omission...to those expecting cake in their cake.

It's OK Dan, we in the Mother Country allow our young settlers and colonists some leeway in founding their fledging communities.

You don't even want to think about eating the Hairy Haggis, not only are they hairy on the outside, the hairs go right through.
