After such an excellent w/e on the Chat I feel a lighter moment coming on to relieve the tension.

In the pub yesterday following more heated debate re the independence debate the conversation drifted, as it does, to the very serious topic of what do you call a person from Nigg?

Well, perhaps, disappointingly but more thankfully they are called 'Soutars,' probably from an older area near Nigg itself.

.......and as another dreich day breaks with the pub not yet open the mind drifts, as it does, to other unfortunate placenames and what the residents are called - here are a few;

Udny (Aberdeen)
Bladda (Paisley)
Joppa (Edinburgh)
Assloss (Ayrshire)

For more international oddities and others try

I must get out more! :rain
