A man is cupping his hand to scoop water from a Highland burn.

A Gamekeeper shouts,
'Dinnae drink tha waater! Et's fu' ae coo's shite an pish!'

The man replies,
'My Good fellow, I'm from England . Could you repeat that in English for me'

The keeper replies,

'I said, use two hands - you spill less that way!!!

No offence intended before you all start!!! Just political humour

I dont mean to sound like a grumpy old fart but I thought this forum was about emigrating and NOT about racism and homophobia.

I'm assuming there are gays and people from different ethnic backgrounds who visit this forum and its up to us as Brits, to show everybody that we are here to help them and NOT ridicule them.

I am sure there are people here with racist and homophobic views and if so, please keep it to yourselves. Its not about being PC its about being mature and showing respect to others.

You can still show humour and not be disrespectful to others.

Don't you have a better cause to champion? The point is, the guy made a stupid joke but there are more serious things in the World to worry about.
Say what? Where has the bounced from? Your being in poor, developing countries and liberals doing nothing?
huh?

Because it is racist and needs to be pointed out? Perhaps?

But these are the interesting pages, no one reads the immigration crap.

Remember it's an internet forum for anyone so mature and respect go out the window. Talking complete b*llocks is ok though!!
