Sunday funnies

Apparently you can get just about anything from vending machines these days (most of these, not surprisingly, are located in Japan):

Good advice.

Interesting window seat design (you go first).

New, from Paco Enterprises' fashion subsidiary, Douche Bag Products: the clip-on man bun.

Cheating expert:

Oh, swell. Just what we needed here in the good ol' US of A: authentic haggis.

For those who aren't certain what haggis is, behold:

A traditional haggis recipe describes haggis as "sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animals stomach and boiled".

I ... ulp ... can't wait.

I've gotta believe that the first person to have ever eaten that must have been literally starving.

It's the original comfort food. Especially with whisky.

It might taste alright if you ate it before someone told you what was in it. Such was my experience with a German dish called Saumagen. After I ate two helpings of it, they told me what was in it. Basically, Sow's Stomach.

And during my first and only trip to Germany, found that they have/had vending machines that served beer.

Oh, it's a hair piece.

Anna Russell commented that haggis eating is traditionally accompanied by bagpiping, "probably to keep your mind off what you're eating." I'm sure copious quantities of whiskey help haggis go down. Indeed,Scots may have whiskey taste buds like other men have beer goggles.

I can see the warning label on the haggis in American stores now: You must be over 21 to buy this product. We card.

Addendum: my grandmother, a dyed-in-the-wool Appalachian, used to tell me that when they slaughtered pigs, they ate everything, including the "liver and lights". Lights are what they called the lungs. But then most Appalachians are Scots-Irish and Welsh, anyway.
