Get your website right, Whisky was never invented by the Irish. Scots
invented the stuff before them with distillation widely practiced since 2000
bc. The Irish like to claim at things that don't belong to them and like to
change history accordingly!!!!


P****d off Scotsman

Okay, I understand that you're Scottish.  That explains most of your bullshit.

The first written record of whiskey comes from 1405 in Ireland, where it was distilled by 
missionary monks as early as the 12th century.  The Scots ran a distant second with their first 
mention of the distilled spirits in 1496 though it's possible they were getting pissed on scotch 
a few centuries prior to writing it down.

The point is that when or where whisky was first distilled is unknown, but all indications point 
to the Irish being first by all counts.  And the lack of supporting documentation to say otherwise 
(which makes sense since few Scots to this day know how to read or write) renders specific etiology 
of whiskey's origins difficult at best.

And yet you keep coming back for more.  You either have attention deficit disorder or you crave 
the sting of my verbal taunting.  Sure, your words say 'no,' but your eyes keep saying, 'YES, YES, 
PLEASE DADDY, YES!'

The impressiveness of that claim is exceeded only by the stark lack of quantifiable historical record 
to support its being made.

As is Irish superiority over the Scots.

You're welcome.

Well, a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar on evening fair.
One could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share.
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet,
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

About that time two young and lovely girls just happend by.
One says to the other with a twinkle in her eye,
"See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built,
 I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt."

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be.
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see.
And there behold, for them to view, beneath his Scottish skirt
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth.

They marveled for a moment, then one said, "We must be gone.
 Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along."
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow,
Around the bonnie star, the Scotsman's kilt did lift and show.

Well the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree.
Behind a bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees.
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes,
"Ah!  Lad I don't know where you been, but I see ya won first prize."
