No. Despite claims to the contrary they are inherently lazy and travel everywhere on gold plated mobility scooters. Fucking Rock Stars.

Mark McManus (Taggart) used to drink in a pub my mum worked in years ago (obviously since he died in 1994). Colin McRae was from (and died just outside) my town. WIlliam Wallace lived in my town. Walter Smith was born here. And Glen Michael came here once with his Cartoon Cavalcade tour. Also- our local Poundland was opened by Tina Malone (Mimi from Shameless). Actually, forget that last one....

And I know something pretty scandalous about ex-Celtic goalie Rab Douglas that I won't say here as I don't want to get sued

Here's a thought.....

Independence? Yey or Ney?

I'm undecided - for the simple reason being that neither side of the argument have bothered to provide a compelling answer that doesn't fit their own biased agenda.

Additionally, chippies of all kind make me boke.


I like being part of the United Kingdom, and I don't think we would survive economically if we were to go independent, so it's a no for me. Plus, I can't stand Alex Salmond, absolutely useless. Frankly, I believe he should resign for sucking up to Murdoch, but oh well, that won't happen.

Elections tomorrow!

My problem really is that I can't stand any of them.

It seems that the more elections/councils/parliaments you live through, the more disillusioned you become with the political process. No wonder the elderly become so bitter.

And with these council elections tomorrow, I genuinely have no idea who I'm going to vote for.

Maybe there's an anti-trams ticket?

The only chippy worth noting is the chip van that goes round my hometown. Been there since I was a tiny wee thing and still the same staff. They still recognise me to this day and they always ask about my Gran or my cousins. His chips are the best around and oh man his half pizza suppers. None of your deep fried mars bar bollocks, real chippy doing real chippy food.

He also sells his sauce in barrs glass bottles for 1.

As for the deep fried Mars bars they're hardly a myth. Most chip shops in Edinburgh will do one, you just have to ask as they usually don't advertise them, except the one at the top of Broughton Street which is famous for them.


You mean the piccante? I thought they were more famous for their DJ sets over the weekend.

At least they used to be, there weren't any pumping tunes the last time I was there...

Have to be honest though, I've never even noticed an option in there for a deep fried mars bar (not that I was looking for one it has to be said....)


There's a big poster on the window that says DEEP FRIED MARS BARS SOLD HERE

And I've seen that chippy on the tv a few times due to their Mars bars aswell.

Edinburgh chippies>>>>>>>>>>>>>all other Scottish chippies

The only city in Scotland where you can smother everything in that beautiful Edinburgh chippy sauce (and no its not just ordinary brown sauce). In Glasgow they drown it in vinegar () making everything all rank, same with everywhere else in my experience. Chippy sauce rules.

As for the deep fried Mars bars they're hardly a myth. Most chip shops in Edinburgh will do one, you just have to ask as they usually don't advertise them, except the one at the top of Broughton Street which is famous for them.


Possibly true with the exception of Beppo's in Arbroath which make the finest fish suppers of them all.

Crispies in Keynsham ("that's K-E-Y-N-S-H-A-M"), in between Bristol and Bath (and our local lunchtime chippy when I was at secondary school), was the first chippy outside of Scotland to offer deep fried Mars bars. True story. They made national news at the time. Unfortunately it was and still is a shit chippy.

Slightly on but off topic, can anyone remember where that fast food place that will deep fry literally everything they have on their food menu and any food item a customer takes to them is? I can't even remember which country it's in, but seem to remember it being quite popular in the media a few years ago (during a slow news period).

I hated Irn Bru bars! They were only ever decent if they were warm and melty and even then it was like chewing off a piece of rubber. My favourite when I was a kid was a spearmint flavoured bar I can't remember the name but those were amazing! And refresher bars.

I've never been able to eat any of those chewy bars since I pulled a filling out with an Irn-Bru bar then crunched down on it as a kid.

Those things were lethal, like Wham bars only worse.

I heard Wham bars were just about to come back - the rights had been bought from the defunct company that used to make them.

McCowans who made them went into administration last year, not sure if they pulled through or not. Maybe if they diversified a little and started deep frying them they might still be going strong.

They've been going in and out of administration for years now.

We still get them in NI, though only in a few places. There's a cafe in Belfast makes Wham Bar milkshakes.

They won't be like the old Wham Bars you used to get in the 80s, though. Those things could rip your tongue to bits

Most proper sweet shops (i.e. those dedicated to selling sweets and only sweets) still sell them, but I'm not sure if that's just old stock or what.

EDIT - a Google shopping search would suggest that it's old stock and that it's no longer made. So, if you see any, buy up as many as you can to ensure your eBay fortune in a few years time!
