Also not so much an irish thing as an "anywhere people eat potatoes" thing, from what I've noticed. Potatoes are apparently fairly universally delicious to human palates.

Also pretty much grow anywhere, those plucky Andean tubers.

Haggis is definately Scottish.
It is now, but apparently the term itself originated in england :P
It's interesting, since it feels to me sometimes like half of the Scottish Romanticism that turned the Highlanders from Jacobin yokels into true Scots was as much a creation of London as it was Edinburgh: to wit, the obsession with all sorts of kitschy tartanry as fed by royal courts of the UK and beyond.  I look at it the same way as Irish potatoes, Italian tomatoes, or Swiss chocolate. ^_^

T’be fair, had the English not tried to stamp out rebellious sentiment by crushing the clan system and banning “highland wear” outside of the army, it probably wouldn’t have turned out that way.

I can safely say that I have consumed as much or more potato than your average irish bloke, regardless of how much potato said bloke has consumed. I am an American, and so I consume more french fries per capita than there are strands of grain in Europe.

Your move, Murphy!  :P

The real potato eaters are we, the Dutch. Dutch common dishes are all served with potatoes.
Can be boiled, baked, pureed, fried, but it's all potatoes here. Boiled potatoes with gravy is the most common form, after that, pureed.
Hell, one of van Gogh's most famous paintings is even called 'the potato eaters', depicting your average rural 19th century Dutch family at the dinner table.

I have had few dinners without chips. It is a staple of Scottish dinners.

Also mince n tatties, but I don’t like boiled or mashed, so I give that a miss. Stick with my chips.

So is this now the Ameripotato thread?

Same here, chips wind up being part of most quick and easy meals I make because I'm not a fan of other quickish methods of making potatoes. Just one of those annoying things were tastier stuff takes a lot longer and I often can't be bothered spending an extra forty minutes waiting for food to cook.

If the Dutch are the real potato eaters, then I fear for the French.

I feel like the only person in the world who doesn't really like potatos.  IMO, Soylent has more flavor, and feels more like real food hitting my stomach.

I had a problem with Soylent until I learned it was mostly made from the English (read "ayng-lish") and as a Scot I think there is one thing the Irish will always agree with us on: fook the aynglish!

I mean. You can do that to soylent, too, I guess. Some of us wouldn't judge. Sounds messy, though...

The Welsh sing, too.

Only folk from Aberdeen in Scotland do the sheep thing. Evidently all that oil money doesn’t weed out the perversions...

We are also tight-fisted and racist in the rest of the land, byraway.

That's the Welsh, mate.

Scots just get pissed, wear kilts, and hate England. The Welsh fuck sheep and sit around in idyllic villages feeling depressed because the mines/factories have all closed.
Things are a lot more depressing now that you can't put your kids in a coal mine. No fun allowed I say
