Parliamo Glasgow : Lesson 1

I'm not sure if Scotland's other national drink, Irn-Bru, is advertised anywhere other than Scotland. I saw this ad on TV for the first time this week and couldn't stop laughing - till I was almost crying. But before I ask you to view this little ad - I need to give you a dictionary definition (Glasgow Slang Dictionary not the Oxford version) of the word fanny.

Fanny (noun) : a derogatory term to describe a person of low intelligence.

You are now qualified to watch the ad!



Genius! Whatever they are paying these advertising people it's not enough - the ads are a welcome break from the dross (football, football and more football) on TV at the moment.

Onto the LIM challenge this week which is themed 'Something Shiny'.





I've used a Pink Petticoat Best Fishes image and sentiment, the 'Sprightly' papers were a freebie from Two Peas In A Bucket, a little hand sewing and the shiny elements are a few gems for the bubbles.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.



Edited to add: I'm much more Earl Grey than Irn-Bru in case you were wondering!
