EXCERPTS FROM 'A MAN'S A MAN FOR ALL OF THAT'


What though on hamely fare we dine,
Wear hoddin grey, an' a that;
Gie fools their silks, and knaves their wine;
A Man's a Man for a' that:

The honest man, tho' e'er sae poor,
Is
king o' men for a' that.

Then let us pray that come it may,
(As come it will for a' that,)

That Sense and Worth, o'er a' the earth,

That Man to Man, the world o'er,
Shall brothers be
for a' that.

PLEASE BE SEATED
WHILE WE ADDRESS THE HAGGIS


Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o' fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer
Gie her a haggis!










BE HAPPY, MA WEE BAIRNS.

Clay: Welcome to the Lunch Counter. (MI5? We don't often have British spies breaking bread -- or wind -- with us here. Although, I believe Omar once worked for the government.)

I'll be around to check out your digs. Cheers.

Omar has given his life's blood to the service of others!

Llewellen... an extra chunk of haggis and some oat cakes for Omar. His dedication to the well-being of others is an inspiration to us all.
