Not terribly long ago, The Scotsman newspaper printed a helpful list of 15 words that have alternate meanings in Scotland. It pointed out that pudding has nothing to do with a Jell-O mix but is often a sausage made from pigs’ blood, that messages means grocery shopping, and that if you mince something, you’ve pretty much effed it up.

Unfortunately, the paper failed to include chug on the list, which is why Mountain Dew UK is being dragged across Scottish Twitter for inadvertently telling everyone that they’re chronic masturbators.

LOL failpail

I just emailed our family friend who lives in Scotland, pardon the time difference but I am sure she'll have a saucy reply by tomorrow, replete with numerous expectorations of the C-word, which they don't think is nasty at all, by the way.

(In fact, her throwing that out, frequently and with great gusto, cracks Karen up)

Sort of like "enjoy a fag": Means very different things in the UK versus here. Wide-stance Larry will explain that he just wanted a cigarette!
