To see oursels as ithers see us

I’m not a great one for quoting Burns, after he urged henpecked husbands to take a switch to their wife, but this line from To a Louse seems to fit.

If you haven’t already seen it, this Taiwanese take on this week’s independence row is absolutely hilarious. They certainly seem to understand Scotland well – because we have spaceships fuelled on Irn Bru in our streets all the time, don’t you know?

And did you know that the referendum had timed to coincide with the 700th anniversary of Mel Gibson’s death?

When this was pointed out to the makers, they simply said “it’s funnier this way.”

Can’t argue with that.

    great stuff! Good to see Scotty from Star Trek helping to reinforce national stereotypes – but who is the yellow fellow with the ginger beard?

    Cameron looks strikingly like Miliband… hmm…

    Is it not a bit hypocritical not being a fan of Burns due to a line in one of his poems while showing a video of the simulated chopping off of William's head ?

    You seem keen on The Beatles and Paul McCartney despite that controversial album cover with The Beatles in butchers coats while sitting with the simulated severed heads of babies….

    Adrian, I think that's Willie the ground keeper (or jannie) from the Simpsons.
