This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Scotland article.
This article is not funny
Why does this article pass for humor? It is about as funny as cancer. All it is, is a collection of smug little put-downs that have obviously been conjured up by some pompous little Englanders.
Check out the French and German sites for pages about Scotland that actually have humor in them.
(It's also quite strange how we can edit the Scotland, and Wales pages but not the England page. It is bias I wonder or just dreary English nationalism? - some are able to give it but not to take it. How childish.)
There is little humour here. It's all about stereotypes and racism. Och, hoo can we no' mak fun o' oorsells withoot haein a go at ithers? There's a lot o' humour in Scotland; let's show it.
Who ruined the article
This used to be one of the funniest articles on uncyclopedia, it used to be light hearted fun, now it's a bunch of racist comments, just look at the introduction. It used to say something like "the Scottish parliament was designed by Manuel from Faulty Towers to make Edinburgh the Barcelona of the north" which was funny. Now it says “The Scots have a Parliament which was designed by Manuel from Fawlty Towers, and is a desperate (failed) attempt to make Edinburgh look like the "Barcelona of the North".” which sounds spiteful like the rest of article, if you hate Scotland then don't look it up on Uncyclopedia. Same goes for any anti-English comments, you don't have to hate England of you love Scotland.
I did this for nothing
good day good sirs

"Scotch Pride" Picture is on purpose. Only a moron would say Scotch instead of Scottish. Wait I just did, doh!
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Zee Twdur Family vere Welsh
Same old Anti-English crap from racist Scots.
As opposed to Anti-Scottish crap from racist Englishpeople?
English people don't care about / know where Scotland is, Calm down Scots guys and gals, you seem to have an inferiority complex. --CrabPope 23:37, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
It's still funny, especially with the language its written in. Bravo!
No, it's just stupid, with most of it just offensive without any humour.
That's what scottish humor is all about, silleh!! 22.214.171.124 07:10, 11 July 2007 (UTC)kinzukiwi
It's not a funny article at all. It's just a collection of insults by smug Little Englanders.
^^ Leave it out the Scottish are always insulting England and when we do it, they don't like it, we do it better it's simple
- Yes we English people do write the better insults about ourselves... I mean the Scots.-- 09:07, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
I found the article quite funny and not in the least bit insulting. If the sort of bigoted rubbish spouted by CrabPope (racists, inferiority complex, etc) appears in the article, then of course it needs to be reverted. But we need to be able to laugh at ourselves. 126.96.36.199 16:56, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, I agree: we have got to be able to laugh at ourselves. Only yesterday I looked at myself in the mirror and spent three hours laughing hysterically at the grotesque and ridiculous sight that confronted me. Then I spent the next five hours sobbing. Rob da Knob 17:49, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
Is there a way to make the city list into two columns? ie: One for North and one for South. The List is sloppy down there. Like your Aunt Trudy. Ansible 00:04, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Aye! Somebody removed the Simulated Scotish Accent(tm) from the text!
What's wrong with Falkirk?
Someone somewhere needs to know that when I tried to edit the 'Scotland' page on Wed 19th Jan (2011) - the page seized up and couldn't be edited. Is it protected in someway? I tried to edit the England page next and the same thing happened. What's more important, as well as seizing up the pages the computer seized the computer up a bit (affecting other sites) and they couldn't be closed - and it wasn't my computer. (Notregisteredyet)
Shame! Racist Unencyclopedia!
Can one of the dictators who have protection status do a favour for us lesser mortals and change:
"The only people who dislike the Scots are the English, ..."
to the correct:
"The only people who dislike the Scots are the English, and everyone else who has the mis-fortune to experience them."?
Could they also change the Scotchy flag to the Cross Of St. George, as on the England page the English are not allowed to have the Cross Of St. George? (It's been replace by some Hitlerian vandal darling.)
- No thanks, there's a line between parody and hate - learn it.-- 19:14, February 17, 2011 (UTC)
000ps! Skirting hate by Hitlerian Sickomore - Will someone please change the racist St. Andrews flag for the same thing that's now on the England page please. Otherwise the page will continue to break UK laws on equality and racism.
- What flag do you speak of? How would having a St. Andrew's flag on an article about Scotland be racist? What laws do you cite as being broken, considering both England and Scotland are parodied on the site included the shared UK culture?-- 19:44, November 20, 2011 (UTC)
(As a (northern) Englishman) The English do not hate the Scottish.
July - DavefaceFMS - Info box
I added in a national anthem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEh_NSnzXBM
July - DavefaceFMS - An awful big changey
I've been thinking, and I know it's a a big change but how about after the article is written putting it all though: http://www.whoohoo.co.uk/scottish-translator.asp
and adding this to the top of the page:
This article pertains to Scottish things, dae nothin tae to fix this. It is recommended that while reading this article you wear a kilt,
drink Irn-Bru, eat Jock pies and sing Auld Lang Syne loudly.
Failure to observe these precautions could cause you unexpected distress and a life of misery in Falkirk.
Any thoughts on this?

- It's funny as it is, so making it unreadable wouldn't be as funny. And that template is ugly, IMO. • Puppy's talk page • 08:17 26 Jul
- Templates and tinkering are not really desirable. It's better to work in articles that need re-working, rather than good ones.-- 09:10, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
