Family Humor

Tony Blair is visiting an Edinburgh hospital and he enters a ward full of
patients with no obvious signs of injury or illness.

He greets the first patient and the patient replies,

"Fair fa your honest sonsie face,
Great chieftan o the puddin race,
Aboon them a you take your place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
Weel worthy are you o a grace
As langs my airm."

Tony, being somewhat confused, just grins and moves on to the next
patient and greets him. The patient replies,

"Some hae meat and canna eat,
and some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
So let the lord be thankit."

Even more confused, but trying not to show it, Tony moves on to the next
patient who immediately begins to chant,

"Wee sleekit, cowerin, timrous beasty
O what a panics in thy breastie
Thou needna start awa sae hastie,
Wi bickering brattle."

The last patient seems to be a winter sportsman:

When Winter muffles up his cloak,
And binds the mire like a rock;
When to the loughs the curlers flock,
Wi' gleesome speed,
Wha will they station at the cock,
Tam Samson's dead?

Alarmed, Tony turns to the doctor who is accompanying him and asks, "What
kind of unit is this, a psychiatric ward?"

"No", replies the doctor, "This is the Serious Burns Unit."
