    Outrage as Scotland's national dish rebranded 'Great British Haggis' | Daily Mail Online



    Outrage as food producer rebrands Scotland's national dish the 'Great British Haggis' to broaden its appeal
    Stahly Quality Foods, based in Fife, has come under fire following the rebrand
    One woman has described it as a 'betrayal', while another said 'this is wrong'
    Ken Stahly, the company owner, says he is confident the haggis 'will be enjoyed'
    So Jam & Haggis to lead exports!

    Yes, I've eaten it many times. Lovely stuff. Haggis, mashed potatoes, butter fried leeks. Yum.

    Much to his dad and mum's dismay
    Horace ate himself one day
    He didn't stop to say his grace
    He just sat down and ate his face
    "We can't have this!" his dad declared
    "If that lad's ate he should be shared"
    But even as he spoke they saw
    Horace eating more and more:
    First his legs and then his thighs,
    His arms, his nose, his hair, his eyes
    "Stop him someone!" Mother cried
    "Those eyeballs would be better fried!"
    But all too late for they were gone,
    And he had started on his dong...
    "Oh foolish child!" the father mourned
    "You could have deep-fried those with prawns,
    Some parsely and some tartar sauce..."
    But H was on his second course;
    His liver and his lights and lung,
    His ears, his neck, his chin, his tongue
    "To think I raised him from the cot
    And now he's gone to scoff the lot!"
    His mother cried what shall we do?
    What's left won't even make a stew..."
    And as she wept her son was seen
    To eat his head his heart his spleen
    And there he lay, a boy no more
    Just a stomach on the floor...
    None the less since it was his
    They ate it - and that's what haggis is
    I also like andouillette.

    Good haggis a real treat.

    If you are going to eat an animal don't forget the tail & squeak!

    Obviously it didn't put you off. You've been dishing it up here ever since.

    Weatherspoons do a passable haggis burger. I was staying in one by accident and thought i'd give it a whirl.

    When I took the kids to look for the Loch Ness monster we were doing the tour of Urquhart castle and there was a guy dressed in battle gear with an assortment of weapons (Claymores, Broadswords, DannyBoy's) to do a little talk and display. He was asking the crowd what animals they might have hunted in the forests, and after the yanks had run out of bone stupid answers (sheep ffs) I whispered 'haggis' to my little lad who immediately shouted it out. Made i larf.
