    Uh, I wouldn't have asked if I were kidding. I'd have just ignored it like all the rest of your weird-ass threads.

    Just googled. Apparently you're so tight with a dude who has been dead for 200-some-odd years that you can call him Robbie.

    I know who Robert Burns is. No idea who Robbie Burns is.

    He's considered the National Poet of Scotland and wrote, among other things, Auld Lang Syne.

    His birthday is pretty much a national holiday in Scotland and for people with Scottish ancestry (like you) :)

    Pretty much any Scot I know refers to him as Robbie Burns.
     
  9. I'll skip the Haggis, but I may have a dram in his honor.

    Well I don't know any Scots. So suck it.

    I'm going to go hang out with 'Racky and Chelle Obama. I think ol' Willie Clinton's going to swing by too.

    No reason to get all huffy with me because you've never head of Robbie Burns Day.

    And this from someone who claims Sir John A. MacDonald as an ancestor
