three legged monster with teeth simpering, mincing and primping, looking for food.
The Scottish Word:


Dinni be fooled by its mimpin an primpin.

Its heid’s aw teeth an its brain’s in it’s belly.

It’s no a bonnie thing ataw an neither will we be if it gets a hud o us.

Hoo it kin mimp wi a gub fou o teeth like thon I dinni ken.


mimp: To speak or otherwise act in an affected manner, to mouth one’s words like a rabbit nibbling straw.

Do not be fooled by its prissy overdone affected mouthing and the self important neat and tidy mincing attitude.

Its head is all teeth and its brain is in its belly (obsessed with food).

It is not a pretty thing and neither will we be if it gets a hold of us.

How it can simper orotund bombast with a mouthful of teeth like that I do not know.

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