It's probably because people tried to make their food stock last as long as possible so they used all of the animal in order to survive. This entered into a cultural heritage that persists even though there is no longer the need. Most countries have varieties of sausage made from stomach lining and offal. Haggis is actually sheep's lung filled with heart, liver and offal minced with onions, spices and oats.

Did you mean to say a sheep's stomach filled with sheeps lung heart liver etc ?

RE: Oaktree 500's Great British Q&A
More questions for the self-appointed GB expert... Angel

Should we be proud that we are the second biggest arms dealer in the world?
Or annoyed that we're not first?

And that two-thirds of UK weapons have been sold to Middle Eastern countries since 2010

And that the UK has the largest number of companies in the world specialising in repression / surveillance technology and all the lovely stuff you can buy to spy on your own population.

Or that we have the largest number of private military (security) companies registered, in the world.

Not in relative terms; in absolute terms.

BAE Systems plc is just the pick of the crop.

Which bitch witch of a Prime Minister and disgusting excuse for a human being started all that?




In case anyone hadn't guessed ... not always proud to be British.

And I've never tried fish and chips.

But my Brit-recipe cauli-cheese is famous in Oz, Canada, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.

And I keep my citizenship because apple crumble and bread & butter pudding.

Without walnuts.

Fuck Walnuts!

Angry

Sorry, all you blood pudding proponents, I'M sticking with bacon. So there! Hrumph!

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Do fish and chips come wrapped in newspaper like I've seen in the movies?

Yeah my fault. Never actually had Haggis and now I've given up eating meat and dairy it's not going to happen anyway.

RE: Oaktree 500's Great British Q&A
HA! I didn't say I was an expert at all, just thought that this was a fun thing to do.

Personally, I don't agree with a lot of things like that, (Arms dealing generally, surveillance and so on), so my thoughts on the matter are probably irrelevant although we (the British) stand out in a lot of other areas (Music/Television/Medical reasearch/Education/AI technologies/Literature for example), as well as making things that blow up or watch you get blown up.

I'm not proud to be British, but I'm also not "against" it. I was born here, but that doesn't make me any better than anybody else, not does it mean the country is better/worse than any others either.

Why are homosexual encounters required as a rite of passage for your men?

They used to but not anymore because of the contamination from the ink. I used to eat fish and chips in newspaper wrapping as a child in the late 70's. Last time I ate fish and chips I think it came wrapped up in food grade paper that was printed to look like a newspaper which probably confuses kids nowadays. I mean imagine you went to a foreign country and bought a cream cake where the packaging was printed to look like a bank statement or earnings report.
