I'm never going to the US. Apart from anything else, I won't be allowed to come within five feet of the border because I'm a filthy non facebook using foriegner.
But I'm also white, and also a citizen of Ireland, so they might let me in anyway.

Careful now, they'll still confiscate your haggis.

Does it really matter? They'll confiscate your haggis and throw you out if you insist you don't have any.

... that said, it's traditionally scottish at this point, yes. Doesn't mean other folks can't make it, but eh.

Nobody makes haggis.

You wait at the bottom of the hills that the wild haggis graze on, waiting for the ones that turn the wrong way round for their asymmetric legs and end up rolling into the haggis-catching nets.

Apparently there's no real source to the "Haggis is Scottish". Thing other than an 15th century English text saying so. But plenty of other sources that suggest it was a variation on a common old way to make use of cheap pieces of meat that would otherwise quickly go bad. So Starver is not too far off. Trqditionally nobody would decide to make it. They just would end up with it and the choice to toss it or cook it. And when you're hungry enough...

Haggis is definately Scottish. While I'm here, I might also mention that shamrocks and four leafed clovers are two different things, four leafed clovers do not exist, corne beef and abbage is an American invention that is unheard of in Ireland and if you find somewhere that serves it, congratulations, you're in a tourist trap. We do not have pots of gold, we do not marry our cousins, Irish is a minority language barely spoken any more that is related to Welsh and Scots Gallic, the Celts were a cultural group that included most of mainland Europe until the Romans wiped it out except for in the British isles and a few other places, celt is pronounced kelt, not selt (Feckin.. Boston... People...), we are not all farmers, we are not all called Paddy, we do not appreciate Yanks coming over and saying they're Irish when thay couldn't actually apply for Irish citizenship, and for the love of god, we do not eat lucky charms!

Now, B12, I expect four pages of taking the piss out of Ireland.

Also, Glasgow Celtic probably have a lot to do with the mispronunciation of the word ďceltsĒ.

Iím fairly surprised you didnít mention Scotland stealing whiskey from Ireland, though...

Also also, a lot of Scottish folks have Irish heritage, what with a great deal of historic immigration from tíEmerald Isle.

Also also also, Americanís are weird with their patriotism  while simultaneously having the  ability to claim being from someplace else. Whatís up with that.

I'm pretty sure Irish are honorary Americans, same as Canadians. If they were any more American we'd annex you and make you the 51st state (because fuck Puerto Rico, amirite). It helps that you don't like the Queen: being a Republic is non-negotiable (so no Canada, Australia, etc). Besides, Ireland likes being controlled by English-speakers from over the sea, right?

What a terribly misplaced semicolon. And your puns win you no friends. :P

We do not have pots of gold,
Borrow some from the Swiss then. :P

Admittedly, Americans weren't all that fond of all the Irish who came over who said they were Irish and who did apply for American citizenship, but if we could look past that, why can't you?

Not only do four-leaf clovers exist, but so do five, six, and the world record holding fifty-six leaf clovers. Doesn't have anything to do with Ireland, but they exist.

Sounds like something that a certain Leprechaun would say... Where is it!? Where's the end of the rainbow!?

And what do you mean four leaf clovers aren't real? Anyone can probably go outside and comb through a clover patch and find one within 20 minutes of good combin'. You deserve good luck for doing that.

There's a much easier way, just take a normal 3 leaf clover and rip one of the leaves in half, tada, four leaf clover.

Make your own luck in life.

I wrote a massive series of paragraphs here denouncing hite supremacists, going over the US's past, explaining multiple parts of it's history, and much much more, but it went somewhat more in deoth than was comfortable for me when I re-read it, and in the interest of not starting an argument, I have edited my own post and taken it all out. Here, however, is a snippet from the end:

"...
Why did I mention neo Nazis again?
...
Godwin's law, probably."


To summarize my removed post, I shall now add a bit for the records:
Basically, the US is a melting pot, and they're proud of everything they do.
