Dayumn. I just joined the forum BECAUSE OF THIS AMAZING THREAD. :D Hello!
Welcome! Thanks for your post. That's awesome! How many years did it take you to lose the "scone" and start saying "s-con?" I bet it took some time! I'm totally trying, just for you European PPKers. Thank you for the additional restaurant tips, too!

... now if I could just find a Scottish, Irish, (or according to fezza, a hot Welsh) man to marry, I'd be the happiest gal alive. Peace out, U.S.A.

Well Meggs I dunno, that one got drummed into me quick *cough* ;) I was terribly confused by Scooooooone Palace and why it's called that, still am really. But the Scots are nothing if not humorous with place names - I love to get English people to pronounce Milngavie now that I know how to say it :D

AMEN SISTA. I always considered myself an Anglophile, but fo shiz these Scotsmen are not only persuasive and sexy but quite easy on the ear. Okay maybe not when they're drunk...

You are aware that you appear to be the only person taking any of this seriously, right? Part of what Interrobang?! is having fun with is the fact that the Scottish people take a tonne of crepe from the Brits because of the way they talk. The Brits think that it's clever to make the same jokes about Scotland over and over and over and over...

Hi scotpaulabear! I find it wonderfully hilarious and not a little bit awesome that you decided to sign up based on this thread! I'm glad you weren't put off by some of the nonsense herein :)

Well that's an awful fancy spelling for how one is supposed to say it. I would imagine people mispronounce it often!

I am going to find out for myself. Sooner than later. According to fezza's "How to Speak Norn Iron," "I think we should get married soon" = "I'm pregnant," so I could go that route.

(Kidding.... in case there was any doubt.)

Hi Interrobang! I adore Scotland, love the vegan food in Glasgow (and Edinburgh) and have a highly developed love of the absurd, what's not to love about this thread :D

Who the hell let a resident of Scotland post in a thread about Glasgow, Scotland? What the hell?

likewise, i can only assume that when you mention "nonsense" you're talking about me. it could very well be my n00bness, but it did seem like passions were running very high.

i was showing appreciation for things people posted, as others have done in this thread. but if that's something i shouldn't do, i'll refrain from doing it again.

Again, none of the scone stuff was real passion. It was just people having a lark and taking the peas out of each other. Totally not serious. In the end, 'Bang?! doesn't care if I call scon(e)s sad, flat, unbiscuits or if I fill them with M&M's and sawdust. Wisconsin is serious business. How you say "sad, flat biscuit thingys" is not so much.

There will be no dropping of unnecessary vowels into words in this thread! Keep those crazy extra U's and bizarre zeds to yourself.
Zee forever! The Emperor is correct here, Jojo.

Oh yeah? How does she say it, then? Eh?

She was Scottish and she said it the correct way.

Rhymes with gone. Not cone!

Aye, but you're English so you would think that...

ETK, when I spoke of nonsense I was meaning pretty much every post in this thread bar the first page or so. Including most of the things I have written. And there's nothing wrong with nonsense! Perhaps an, errr, cultural disconnect or sommat? Plan: let's obnoxiously pepper every one of our posts with a dozen smilies so no one is ever given the wrong impression. That'll work fo sho! :)

Faith and begorrah, never mind all this nonsense. 'Tis nearly St Paddy's Day! I move that we start a thread about how all Irish people have red hair and freckles, truculent (yet whimsically impish) dispositions, give a flying fork about the Notre Dame football team, and subsist entirely on corned beef and cabbage, washed down with coffee spiked with Jameson's and topped with whipped cream from a can!
(Fezza? Is that you?)
