Yeah I love these books in Scots dialect. I had a 1960 Broons book when I used to deal in Comics back in the nineties. It reminded me of another the classic cartoon strip "Jocks and the Geordies" from the Dundee stable. 8)

Aye; I've been a fan all my life :) every Christmas I always got a Broons or Oor Wullie annual - they used to print them alternately each year, the annuals can often be found in secondhand shops :o

The Scottish Sunday Post newspaper has a Broons & Oor Wullie strip each week 8)

Oh to live in bonny Scotland. I'd be there with my can of Iron Bru in one hand, the paper in the other and my Welsh Belly spilling over my jeans reading a copy. Nothing but the best for me. Burp.... :P

Really it should be Irn Bru made from girders by Barrs.

Whatever it's made of it hits the spot. It has the zip of Tizer and Phoar of Shandy. :P

I've never liked Irn Bru, or haggis, or whiskey and I've never worn a kilt either :oops:

Ironically I've done all and at the same time, and I'm Welsh. Go figure. :lol:

Plenty of haggis and Irn Bru passed between my lips, though I do prefer the Irish whiskey rather than scotch.

My surname is Munro and I did go to purchase a kilt about 25 years ago but it was going to cost £600 to get one made in the right tartan, wonder how much it would be now.

Seeing that your surname's Munro they'll never get one over you, unless you're 3000ft. Boom, Boom, :lol:
