J is for Jeely Piece

And so, the A to Z Blog Challenge continues...  You can go see my "10 Things that are a Dead Giveaway you're Scottish" vlog  HERE, where I blether on about Scottish stereotypes and other useless drivel.
You can also go and visit a few other bloggers that have signed up for this year's blog challenge HERE.  

Go pop in and remember to leave comments - that is what the challenge is all about, after all.

Today's installment for the letter J.

 "Jeely Piece"

Pronounced: jee-lee pees

Definition: The Scottish version of a jam sandwich.
Usage: Oh ye cannae fling yer jeelie piece oot a twenty storey flat.

Translation: Get me a crocodile and jam sandwich, and make it snappy!

Origin : Who gives a fekkin' rats arse? It tastes sooooo good.

The pretty wee Scottish market town of Jedburgh or as the Scots call it : Jeddart or Jethart, is a town and former royal burgh in the Scottish Borders and historically in Roxburghshire.  

Home to the beautiful 12th century Augustinian Abbey.

And here is the Jeely Piece song.  Happy Thursday, Plonkers...

I always though Scottish was a different language, and now I am convinced!
