Why is she fanning him with a beer bottle?

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some would eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.

We were going to celebrate our Burns Night Supper with the following itinerary:

Chatting and drinking
Saying the grace
In the absence of 1) a haggis and 2) a bagpiper, trumpeting in the pizza
Addressing the pizza and slicing it with the ceremonial pizza cutter at just the right point in the poem (‘an cut you up wi’ ready slight’)
Eating the pizza
Watching Gregory’s Girl

In the end, we heated up some Lean Cuisine, ate some potato chips and watched Zelig.

Happy birthday, Rabbie Burns!

  2. Just what exactly do you mean by “fanning”?
