    19 Weird, Quirky Kinks That Only Scottish People Have

    "Scotch pie and beans. Wo-o-oah scotch pie and beans."

    1. Starting this chant before an event.

    The person who gets it going is officially the Supreme Ruler of the gig.

    2. Eating hot chips on a cold beach.

    3. Swearing.

    BBC / Giphy

    There's nothing quite as satisfying as dropping a few F-bombs, a C-bomb, and a T-bomb, a W-bomb...you get the fucking idea.

    4. Getting back to Scotland after being in London.

    This time in two weeks I will be sat on my sofa at home with a nice cup of tea made with nice Scottish tap water.

    Why does London tap water taste like it's been passed through five million kidneys repeatedly...oh. Yeah, it has.

    5. Drinking the ginger nectar through a twirly straw.

    Twitter: @TomKHeinsohn

    It tastes far better that way. And cures hangovers 87% more quickly.

    6. Scottish Plain with loads of butter.

    Twitter: @MrMalky

    Like, loads of butter. It should be more butter than toast.

    7. England crashing out of the World Cup.

    Sorry, we just can't help it. Your failure gives us sexy feelings.

    8. The modest joy of a 10p mix.

    Twitter: @iamrichyedwards

    The most nostalgic 10p you'll ever spend.

    9. And biting into one of these blasts from the past.

    10. Seeing sweary, witty, political Scottish graffiti.

    Twitter: @Jamiesemple_

    See also: "Theresa May is a fud." "Donald Trump is a custard-flavoured jobby." Lollll.

    11. And Scottish politicians roasting their rivals.

    12. Firing into a full Scottish breakfast when you've got a total bastard of a hangover.

    13. Hotel porridge with shitloads of cream.

    Twitter: @MichelinGuideUK

    Don't tell me this set up doesn't make you slaver with anticipation.

    14. Finding the elusive, perfect roll and slice.

    Twitter: @rory290_rory

    With just the right amount of crispness to the roll, and the perfect amount of sauce. ❤️

    15. Getting stuff for free, particularly whisky.

    Twitter: @AnneKnowlton1

    Even if it's a distillery tour you've paid £20 for, it still somehow counts as "free".

    16. Seeing Scotland in a film.

    Film Four

    Especially when it looks really pretty or familiar. *Wipes away patriotic tear*

    17. The blessed day when it's finally warm enough to sit outside.

    Twitter: @Briarcottages

    Although you keep your jacket on to be on the safe side, obviously.

    18. Driving past the forest on the M74 that looks like a giant cock and balls.

    The penis forest we seen on way scotland hah

    Phwoar.

    19. And, of course, scotch pie and beans.

    vine.co

    If you don't constantly have this song running through your head, you're not Scottish.
