I mind when I wiz your age, they used tae staun fur days an we used tae hae lard-ball fechts. Noo we’re lucky if we get it tae last past noon.


papple: sputter, sizzle.

It is bad enough when the winter lard-man melts so quickly son but it is even starting to sizzle now.

I remember when I was your age, they used to stand for days and we used to have lard-ball fights. Now we are lucky if we get it to last past noon.

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

Humanity in action.

I wonder if the heads out of our backsides reaction to climate change will come soon enough.

Or will it be last minute.

Enough to save humans, pigs and possibly chickens in underground air conditioned bunkers.
