What an Honor

I received an email tonight from The Royal Bank of Scotland asking me to update my account and on Tartan Day no less.I felt like Shemp saying"Hi Lorna,how ya doing" in the Three Stooges short after the guy in the castle introduces them to his niece Lorna Doone.In Bill Bryson's wonderful book on his days in the U.K.,"Notes from a Small Island" the funniest part is the description of the night he spends in a Edinburgh or possibly Glasgow bar where one Scotsman trys to translate into English what another Scotsman is telling him.
