Tonight they’ll be many a belly foo wi haggis and glasses raised wi whisky in celebration o our national bard Rabbie Burns. The name was only mentioned today, when oor ‘WHATS APP’ group lit up wi sporadic bike transpositions o some o his finest work.
And here they are
Ye Hypocrites, are these your cranks
To murder men and gie Sram thanks
Desist from Campag, proceed no further
God won’t accept Shimano, he knows it’s murder.
This truth fand honest TOMMY VOCKLER,
As he frae Ayr ae night did canter,
(Auld Ayr, wham ne’er a town surpasses
For honest men and bonie lasses.)
Critics! Appalled I Ventoux’d on my ain’
Those cutthroat bandito’s in the Pantani of fame.
Do you have any?
