A Scottish Toast to the Lassies!

Every January, Scots around the world pause and pay tribute to Scotland, and Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns. And since Rabbie was quite the ladies man, a fun part of a Robert Burns Dinner is the Toast to the Lassies and the Reply to the Laddies. It’s the opportunity for a couple to step on stage, and have a wee bit of fun insulting either the other sex, or their own.

This year, in St. Louis, I had the privilege of going head-to-head with my mum, in front of 400+ guests.


Quite fun. And if you want more Robert Burns themed fun, check out my Immortal Memory from a few years back.


And my late father’s memorable and unique Address to the Haggis.

Mum and me!
