Talk Scottish To Me

I really, really want to move to Scotland. No, I’ve never been there, but it must be the finest place in the world, because everybody sounds like Craig Ferguson. I have a bit of a thing for Craig Ferguson. No, NO, I just like to hear him talk. There’s just something jolly and warm about a Scottish accent. I imagine hearing those broguish tones coming out of everyone I meet, and I’m ready to start packing.

I suppose thinking that Scotland is full of Craig Fergusons is a bit like thinking that the US is full of Johnny Carsons – jolly, witty, well-read lives-of-the-party with honey-smooth voices. Well, if it's not true, if maybe a few of them look and sound a little more like Liam Neeson in Rob Roy, well, that will just be my cross to bare… I mean bear…

You know how fine ye arrr ta me, laddie? Yeah, you, the one in the “Old School” t-shirt…

Dammit. That's what I was afraid of. It's like coming here looking for George Clooney and getting a bunch of Nascar lovin cable guys.
