Haggis, where is the haggis? I see no haggis.

Edinburgh-based haggis Hamish Macbeth is glad to have survived both New Year's Eve, and now Burn's Night, but cannot help but reflect on the three friends he has lost.

'As a haggis, you have very few natural enemies, but people hunt us down in December, so we have to hide. Other than that, we are fine, out in our natural habitats. I mean, we blend easily into the heather and the grass, but sometimes we are seen, which is when we are caught.'

Professional haggis hunter Angus McCoatup said: 'They are a right timorous beastie, but, come November, I am out there with my sporran and kilt, driving them out with my atonal bagpipe music.'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
