A new record at the World Haggis Hurling Championships was set on Sunday at the home of Robert Burns, as part of festivities to mark the birth of Scotland's national poet.

This IS a day of misconstrued meanings, as I associated hurling with vomiting.

No problem here. I know exactly how I would hurl haggis.

This is all part of that illusion/hologram thing, isn't it? Please say "Yes"...

We visited Burns cottage this past fall--it's a really tiny town.

Also, hurling is a football-type of sport next door in Ireland, so a hurling champion is something else entirely.

Competition only open to men named Ralph.

O'er the ram parts....

Knit one, hurl one.

Well, I heard that the winner used a deflated haggis.

I guess that's better than anything else that might be done with haggis.

so Robert Burns wrote auld lange syne!
also this :

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great Chieftan o’ the Puddin-race!

haggis chewn by ligirl
surely's gonna make her hurl

Haggis Best to hurl before swallowing.

Now that takes some pluck!

It may be a record, but it's nowhere near far enough.
