It is said that the Scots have a good sense of humour/humor because it's free. Much of it is influenced by the stereotypes portrayed by the comedian and music hall entertainer Will Fyfe - and the Net has contributed to its spread. Whatever the reason, we all enjoy a good laugh so here is a large collection, divided into a number of different categories. Enjoy!

More Moths in the Sporran Reinforcing that reputation
Bagpipes The Irish gave the Scots the pipes - and we haven't got the joke yet!
