Is this some scottish thing which we other folk won't understand?


Well, supposedly, it's celebrated around the world, but obviously Burns has yet to infiltrate Scarborough.

Burns = big hard man poet from Dumfries. Did some pretty famous shit like "Tae a mouse" and "AULD LANG ****IN SYNE" and "Banks an braes o bonnie doon" and "Tam o shanter" etc. Famous quote would be "Best laid plans of mice an men aft gan aglay". He was a sorta hard man of the day, especialy in Scotland where he was nationaly renouwned. So, we Scots, take it as an excuse to eat the innards of a sheep stuffed into its intestine after being stewed in blood. This Burns supper ussualy has Neeps n Tatties with it and is preceded by burns' "Ode to the Haggis". and... get absolutely MARRAKED!!!

I'm guessing this is some crazy Scotish holiday?


No, its a tradition. Theres a difference, you can create a holiday but not a tradition.

Soz playa, i thot Dumfries cos his statue is there. Its quite beast...

Small, sleek, cowering, timorous beast,
O, what a panic is in your breast!
You need not start away so hasty
With hurrying scamper!
I would be loath to run and chase you,
With murdering plough-staff.

So basically...he's not going to kill some kind of small animal?

Its about him going about his ploughing on the field when he finds a small mouse that he moves out the way and saves it from getting crushed.
#32
Nope, what he's trying to say is that Man is disrupting animals and the environment. He wrote this because he regretted disturbing the mouse's nest.
