Icon23 Former British Surgeon Says Americans Should Eat More Haggis To Fight Obesity

A UK politician has suggested eating more haggis as a way to tackle America's obesity epidemic, the BBC reports.

Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish made of the heart, liver, and lungs of a sheep or lamb. The chopped up meat is mixed with oatmeal and other spices, such as cayenne pepper and onion. It's then packed up like a jumbo sausage into the lining of a sheep or lamb's stomach and boiled.

AI thought spam was British. Beside in my opinion the typical chain "resturant" burger is enough.

Oatmeal is a lesser known spice. It adds a soupçon of blandness to any meal.

Ok, fellow Americans! We have a week and a half to get ready for Burns Night!

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy o' a grace
As lang's my arm.
