Which would you rather not be, British or Scottish...why?

I would rather not be British because the Scots have:

1. Infinitely better golf courses.
2. Infinitely better whiskey.
3. Infinitely better teeth.
4. Loch Ness.
5. Kilts.

That's an excellent post, MDDAD.

Terrific fly-fishing waters and terrific brown trout. Tartan plaids for wool or flannel shirts are a great touch as well. That said I think I would opt for fish n' chips over haggis any day.

Don't you mean English or Scottish? I believe that Scotland is part of Great Britain.

True, but that's not enough reason to pick Austin Powers over William Wallace.

I'm cool with that as long as he doesn't come packaged as Mel Gibson.

It's a little late for me to not want to be Scottish.
