    23 January,

    John Hancock ... the man most known for his extremely large signature on the United States Declaration of Independence ... is 277 today.

    Randolph Scott (mentioned by name in Mel Brooks' movie, "Blazing Saddles") is 116 today. (I've never seen one of his movies, but I do recall how the townsfolk revered him in Blazing Saddles).

    My bad. It was actually the bagpipe.

    Our ain national bard Robert Burns, born on this day 1759.

    Notable work(s)


    And a slightly less notable ditty:


    Ah wiz oot oan the coorse

    Gowf club in ma hawn

    Checked ma grip, ma stonce

    And the lay of the lawn.

    'Hunner yerds' mah wee caddie did cry

    'Jis whack yer baw n it surely will fly'

    Oot came yon clevey all shiney n nu

    If ah hit thee correctly mah baw will stay troo.

    Whoosh! went mah swing

    Yon baw ah did hit

    'Eff you' sed mah meter

    'Yer gan in thy $hit'


    ..soz, seem to be suffering from terrible Burns at the mo.
