The 'Insult a Scotsman' Game.

This is where we confer honor on those who have earned the title of Prophet. Or, where we mock them. One or the other.

No, No, that's the point. It was a double-whammy insult; calling him a hooligan, and using the American term for (soccer) football.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

This will be going to a vote soon...when I've worked out how to do it.

What have we got so far:

Dances with sheep
Sasquatch Scotsman
BalamoRoy
Puppymaster
Kilt Happens
Thistle Muncher
Mrs Hudson Bay Company
Laugh_Roy_oag (I just made that one up)
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

OK so for Roy we've got:

Dances with sheep
Sasquatch Scotsman
BalamoRoy (probably drop that one)
Puppymaster
Kilt Happens
Thistle Muncher
Mrs Hudson Bay Company
Laugh_Roy_oag (I had some last night :drinking: )
Wales 3 Scotland 0 sack the f******g manager!
"If it's no Scottish, it's CRAP!!"

I think we usually choose 7 alternatives.

It was Bart who got the Avon and Severn confused :wink:

Back to Roy's title I think we're just about ready for the vote.
