Midges released from a jar by a man in full PPE onto a jogger in short shorts.
The Scottish Word:


Aye. Nithin like a ferdy hail-skinnt jogger tae kittle oor covid test midgies intae action.

We’ll gie them an oor or twa runnin roond, if the loun can staun it, afore we test him tae see if they’ve owergaeit the virus.

I wonder if he’s got eneuch blood?

Or eneuch skin?


kittle: stimulate.

Yes indeed. Nothing like a strong active healthy skinned jogger to stimulate our covid test midges into action.

We’ll give them an hour or two running round, if the boy can stand it, before we test him to see if they have overcome the virus.

I wonder if he has enough blood?

Or enough skin?
