A selection of letters received.
Congratulations on the new paper. I loved it. And thanks for the free CD. Every song is wonderful. I particularly liked the 'Subsidy Junkie Song' and go about singing it all day now. The chorus is particularly catchy and I’m often to be heard belting it out with a smile on my face:
You're always on the dole jock,
Your arse is big and round,
You're just a subsidy junkie,
Injecting English pounds.
I knew it. I knew Salmond was the beast. There are too many signs and portents pointing to this to be ignored. Well done on exposing him.
Surely you should be using the Scottish pronunciation in your paper? Jock is of course an English pronunciation. A much better method of communication to your readers would be to use the Scottish way of saying this, which is Joch. As with 'loch' the English have problems with pronunciation - and therefore they corrupt it to 'lock'. Many a time I have chapped on the back of the head ignorant tourists as they stand in front of our beautiful lochs and say 'gee what a wonderful lock.' The water carries them out into the 'lock' and the fish do the rest. So, come on Jochman on Sunday! use the proper pronunciation. (Editor: the police have been informed.)
Other letters received:
You are brilliant.
You should get a medal.
Thank God someone is prepared to tell the truth about Salmond.
Proof that Salmond is not fit for porpoise.
