Then you're American. I could call myself English-Irish-Swedish but I'm not retarded. I've never understood the American 'tradition' of doing that.

That name has a black mark in Scottish history.

There are still pubs in the highlands that won't serve a Campbell...

I've never heard of this, I'll have to do some research.
It does annoy me a little when Americans try to claim that they are Scottish or Irish or Italian or whatever when their great great great great great great grandfather's uncle's wife was from that country. I understand that you want to be proud of where you're from, but to you Scottish-Americans, do you know the slightest thing about Scotland? Can you tell me who the SNP are? Where the isle of Islay is? Have you ever even drank Irn Bru?

Just for the record I'm half Scottish. I was born there, as was my mother and my father's side of the family originated in Scotland (last name is Andrews, it's a sept name from Ross).

I'm just Scottish. Which is proper Scottish. None of this American tosh.

Speaking of this, what happened to the Scottish thread? I miss the chat.

The Campbells massacred the MacDonald clan at Glencoe in 1692.

It's not the massacre itself, but the manner in which they did it. They came to the MacDonalds and stayed the night with them, ate their food, drank their drink and played games as friends. Then at 5a.m. they slaughtered them, many in their sleep, many as they attempted to flee, every one of them unarmed.

"Murder under trust" was one of the most heinous crimes in Scotland.

Wow, that is horrific. I can see how many places won't serve them, trust the Scots to hold onto something for so long.

My dad's girlfriend is 'A' Macdonald. Her surname is macdonald, obviously she's not a member of any moder clan, because that's just for the English...

Scottish Nationalist Party, oh... the south westenly one in the inner hebrides (?) , Irn Bru is a rather nice orange coloured, oddly flavoured drink which Scots are stereotyped to adore, and I've never lived in Scotland.

or Scotsmen carry grudges like none other.

Hell, us Americans got over the Boston Massacre pretty quickly. Just commit an act of civil violence and dump a bunch of tea in a harbor for no real reason. It really helps with the pain.
