The Haggis...

... Ladies and Gentlemen... as was requested, here is the delivery... proof, so to speak, of a nicht of Scottish feasting..... here it is.... a 3 pounder... a monster of a Haggis by all accounts... from out of one stomach, and into many, my people... chased with Rioja and Single Malt... followed by bashed tatties and chapit neeps.... as tasty as anything ever cooked inside the belly of a beast.... pure downhome goodness... oh, and feel free to click on the images for a nice juicy closeup...

... and, gentle ones, here is is split wide open and ready for the feast... notice the veins on the sheep's stomach... a very nice touch, I thought....

... heart, liver, lungs, and various other tasty bits... thrown in with some spices and oats... stuffed inside a deceased sheep's gut... and, slowly boiled to perfection... all in all, it wasn't the best Haggis I've eaten... a bit too rich for my palate... not oaty enough, I'm afraid... but, I suppose it was a fine example of New Jersey's Finest... many thanks to the wonderfully helpful people at Kearny's for a speedy offal delivery... it, quite literally, hit the spot.... I shall be sampling the black, white, and blood puddings of the aforementioned Kearny's in the very near future.... and, of course you'll be getting the skinny on the outcome.... in summation, if ye have'nae tried Haggis, ye have'nae lived, Son....

Bullshit So Far

Jeesus H. Friggin' Christ.....I realize I have consumed some questionable shit in my day.

Case in point:
Shot a blackbird off a powerline with my .177 Benjamin air rifle, breasted it, boiled it in a Maxwell House coffee can over a campfire, and consumed a couple bites to win a bet for some beer money.

But there is no way in hell I am gonna mail order an Ovine autopsy in a bag from New Jersey, no less, and then voluntarily consume it.

There ain't enough A1 in North America for me to even come close to masticating a hunk of that, dawg.

Glad you guys had a good time. Sounds like a riot.

Glad you liked it. Even though I was raised in Kearny, I'd have to take a pass on haggis.

Haha! You described it so eliquently. And how the hell is that even possible?

(Thanks for the tip brotha!)

EEEEEEEEWWWWWWW... I didn't realize they were sheep organs... nasty...

Bullshitted by B on June 15, 2004 07:26 AM

I'm sure it's very tasty if you're into that sort of thing, but I've never been one for internal organ consumption. The only way I could eat liver was drowned in ketchup.

I've got to try it.

Can I have that al Carte? TO Go please!

Bullshitted by Marc on June 15, 2004 07:50 PM

You fail to comment on an important piece of the puzzle: in the bottom picture, is that a glass of beer with ice in it? Or is it a full pint of scotch?

Bullshitted by Mud Blood & Beer on June 16, 2004 02:30 PM

To hell with ala Carte - try it ala mode.

My god, that you could choke that down puts you on par with my father, who eats cow brains, pig ears and whatever other edible parts are on a pig.

Bullshitted by paul on June 16, 2004 02:45 PM

..sorry for the oversight, Mud Blood & Beer... yes, that is a incredibly large tumbler of Scotch.. one tends to need a pint of Scotch before, after, and during the consuming of Haggis...

Bullshitted by eric on June 16, 2004 02:46 PM

I bet that leaves one hell of a marbled turd in the morning.

Bullshitted by Anna on June 16, 2004 06:24 PM


Sigh... reminds me that I haven't eaten a decent blood sausage in years :-(

Bullshitted by Jose on June 17, 2004 03:54 AM

That looks like something that should be found in a dead sheep's rectum rather than in its stomach... and the orifice only adds to the illusion.

Bullshitted by Omni on June 17, 2004 03:35 PM

Haven't lived until I've tried haggis?
Says who?
Any meal that demands the alcohol consumption that your picture provides just ain't worth it.

The closest I've come are a few women for whom I had to consume a similar amount of booze before they began looking good.

But those were the days when people brazenly stepped on my hands while I was simply trying to exit the bar.

Haggis? Maybe I did eat some of that shit back then. As for now, I will settle for a cup of coffee while listening to the Black Watch.

good lord. that's what i've been missing? a few years ago a fella i was dating wanted to "take me out for haggis"... perhaps he was trying to get me to break up with him... no idea... for some reason we never made it to the local haggis place.... thankfully...ermmm, not that the veins didn't look appetizing....eh....

Bullshitted by erin on July 5, 2004 10:13 PM

I've just had some Hagis - and can say it was good. Have some in the fridge right now! How many would turn up their nose at eating eels (a delicacy eaten at Xmas in some countries), snails (esgargo to some), raw clams and oysters... What about liverwurst? The Hagis I have was made in NJ, had an after-taste, that I suspect was Thyme... some say it was Nutmeg... but nutmeg in Hagis???
