Harvey at Bad Example has a hilarious look at Scottish history...here's a taste:
Great Events in Scottish History:
1326 - The game of golf was invented in Scotland, followed shortly thereafter by the invention of the word "DAMMIT!"
1410 - Drinky MacDrunkard discovered how to make single malt scotch. He was then beaten to death by his neighbors when they found out they had to wait 12 years before they could drink it.
Harvey's got about a thousand years of history there so check out the rest of the Scot's great moments...
