Scottish humour in the face of terror

The Glasgow attack and the floods besetting the North of England are spawning some great gags/stories up here in the soggy north.

Two old ladies from Houston Renfrewshire, where the two suspects rented a house had this conversation,

"What's going on here?"

"They've discovered the two suicide bombers were living in Houston!"

"Surely not? After all this is a conservation area!"

Excellent ladies! And you'll have had your tea no doubt?

Meanwhile other wags have suggested that floods in Doncaster will finally allow the poor buggers who won speedboats years ago on Jim Bowen's Bullseye to finally put them to good use - looting!

After living under terror for too long, one learns to take it all in stride. Thats what we are doing in India.

Can't be morose all the time..
