    Default Haggis to blame for Nato issues

    Mr Chirac is also reported to have reminisced about an occasion when Lord George Robertson, the former Secretary General of Nato, had made him try a Scottish dish.

    "That is where our difficulties with Nato come from," he said.


    Hehe, sometimes they get it right.

    Too silly to be in the Backroom...

    We have bad cuisine? Who is it who eats snails and frogs' legs?
    It was not theirs to reason why,
    It was not theirs to make reply,
    It was theirs but to do or die.

    Oh Come on now. French Cuisine better than Scottish? The French need to learn how to grow hair on their nuckles and eat like real men.

    Nothing beats Antillian cuisine anyways. Well, maybe Indisch cuisine, but I doubt it

    Haggis really is delicious, though. Chirac is a wuss.

    Chirac is an ass, thank god he wont be in power after the next french election. He has done a lot of damage to the french relations with the rest of the world.

    hey up...old 'Rooty' is gearing up to hand out an asbo or two

    http://www.crimereduction.gov.uk/asbos2.htm

    I still think that they should nail'em up...nail some sense into 'em.....nice one centurian
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    Ya, sorry to be a snoot, but BKS is off today and he'll whoop me good if I let politics seep into the playground.

    What is this? I have no beer, I have no pizza. Something is wrong here.

    Never ate haggis but it sounds like it belongs be on the chemical weapons list. Say what you want about the french, these guys know what tastes good. The english on the other hand.........sucking that hard at something is somewhat of an achievement on it's own. How do you get the chips so flexible? What on earth is in the frying pan?

    Ugh... erwtensoup... I think I'm gonna-- *retches*

    Where's the damn indonesian food when you need it, to fend off these foul Dutch dishes.

    (although it must be said that stamppot is pretty good... and your average potatoes-vegetables-meat-n-gravy... but that's about it )
