The Scottish Independence Thread

After over 300 years of subservience to London, today we finally find whether the Scottish people have testicles the size of grapefruits, or ovaries that crave the warm embrace of the United Kingdom's uterus.  Although it really shouldn't be that hard to tell, given that they all wear kilts...

Regardless, to celebrate this ultimate act of democracy, let us rejoice in the glory of independence proponent Roddy Piper's way underutilized wrestling prowess and bagpipe playing skills, in this forgotten classic from Roy Shire's San Francisco wrestling promotion.

Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it!

  1. To this day I can't tell the difference between "England", "Great Britain" and "United Kingdom", so anything that makes it simpler would be appreciated, please and thank you!

  2. "Great Britain" is the physical island, which is England, Scotland, and Wales. England, Scotland, Wales, and Nothern Ireland are all countries that together form the sovereign state of the "United Kingdom".

  3. The United Kingdom is England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

    Great Britain is everything on the main island i.e. England, Wales, Scotland

    England is the bit that the Scottish are voting to get away from today.

  5. And Wales. Don't forget those freeloading Wales, sponging off Scotland's oil wealth.

  6. Does anyone know piper's stance on the referendum?

    How about the Highlanders?

    Or Loch Ness for that matter?

  9. As a Welshman I resent that... The Scots have been living off the glorious Welsh sheep industry for generations.

    Well, that and all the coal we dug out of the Welsh mountains

  10. And getting drunk on what? Femented sheep urine?

  12. I'm just shocked that the Yes campaigners never latched on to the Daniel Bryan Yes chants. Imagine all of George Square Yessing... *sigh*


    In any case, I voted today. Yay democracy!

  13. I'll soak my liver in Glenlivet to celebrate.

    Who am I kidding? I was gonna do that anyway.

  15. Speaking of voting, sadly, cancer has robbed me of my chance to vote for Rob Ford in the upcoming Toronto mayoral election.

    I'm thinking this'll be a "no". Whenever polls are close going into the election, the safer option tends to prevail in my completely unscientific survey of me.


    Best of luck Scotland, whichever path you may choose.

  16. The real secession vote that matters will be the one the southern United States and Texas take in 2020 - give or take. And once America unshackles itself from the tire fire that is that region, we can finally be great.

  17. Instead of yes or no, shouldn't it be aye or nay?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Am I the only one MORE confused after watching that?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ford has cancer and has dropped out of the race.

  22. But Piper is Canadian! Not that there is anything wrong with it. . .

  23. Good luck being great with no domestic oil... oh wait, all the oil you could need is too busy being "protected" by jackasses who would be unable to live without the products created from petroleum.

  24. Don't worry; after that region gets a good taste of its own medicine and realizes that making laws based off a literal interpretation of the Old Testament, they'll come crawling home to Uncle Sam.

    As someone with Scottish ties (read: my stepdad and his family are Scottish), this is interesting

  26. Rob Ford will be dropping out of the Toronto Mayoral race due to an unusual form of cancer. Possibly caused by smoking CRACK!

    In all seriousness, I don't see how Scotland will survive as a nation economically without England propping them up. What good is national pride when you're in the gutter in 6 months?

  30. Or they'll invade New Mexico or Oklahoma.


    Or...Mexico. NRA vs. Los Zetas would be hilarious to watch as Texan pride takes a beating.

  31. I certainly don't know the ins and outs of it. But it seems like a lot of separatists are expecting the worse initially, and then using their oil and lack of a military to recover.


    Which means US and UK are still footing the majority of NATO's military budget.
