News, but not the serious kind
Got Haggis? Happy entrails to you…
A frequent topic here is “Stuff you Wouldn’t Put in your Mouth for a Million Dollars.” This brings us to a Reuters story about haggis, a Scottish dish which is basically a sheep’s heart, liver and lungs wrapped inside its stomach lining. In other words, sort of like a turducken gone terribly wrong.
The U.S. has banned imports of haggis. Scotland wants to get the ban lifted, because supposedly Scottish people living here really want to buy the stuff. If you live in heavily Scottish areas of the U.S., this will explain the long lines at the butcher counters in Piggly Wiggly, as shrill bagpipers demand a haggis fix.
My opinion is, Scotland got it exactly right with single malt Scotch, but really blew it when they started stuffing internal organs into each other and calling it food. My solution is, the U.S. should allow haggis to be imported, ONE AT A TIME. When one sells, they get to bring in another one. I’m guessing that first one will be around for a long time.
