An offended feisty little girl turns an insulting misogynist into a toad.
The Scottish Word:


Dinni tell tae me “simmer doon hen”.

Fur yer clack yer a puddock noo.

For ah dinni simmer I bile, nor ahm ah a hen.

Ah’m a bonnie lassie ahn foreby a bonnie witch.

Ya puddock.


Lass, Lassie: girl

Do not say to me “calm down hen”.

For your slanderous and impertinent discourse you are now become a toad.

For I do not simmer I boil, nor am I a hen.

I am a pretty girl, and besides that, a capable witch (a name for powerful empowered women who make male based authority uneasy).

Ya toad.

The Scottish Word: lassie with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
