Getting Irate So That You Don't Have To

Just When You Think Things Couldn't Get Any Worse... seems we're on the verge of a global pandemic.

Not to panic. We've been here before, with Bird Flu, SARS etc.. Nothing much came of them.

Rather than the somewhat melodramatic face-mask solution favoured by some, the Womble recommends instead the greatest medicinal breakthrough of all time....

The Womble swears by the anti-biotic capabilities of Scotch whisky, and has no hesitation in prescribing liberal quantities to all his readers.

The best thing to come out of Scotland. (With the possible exception of the M6).

I'm old enough to remember when we could only afford epidemics.

With each new pandemic and each fresh flight of Air Farce One over a New York building site (ahem!) one does get the sense of a world population being herded about a field in artistic patterns like sheep in a sheepdog contest.

Whistle whistle - make 'em run to the left. Whistle whistle - make 'em run back to the right. Whistle whistle - cut those ones out there and put 'em in that pen, Boy, then take the rest back to the main field.


I like a nice, civilised "beginner's" whisky - Jura's my favourite. I refuse to make my Molotov cocktails from any other sort of bottle.

Man in a Shed is partial to the odd drop of the water of life.

Glen Moray is to be recommended.

I started drinking Whisky when faced with the alternative of Scottish Beer living in Edinburgh. Though to be far some pints 70 & 80 schilling were passable given the alternatives.

A generous double is recommended before reading the govt's plan for the flu pandemic.
