So, if you can t tell your erse from your elbae, if you were ever curious about the reason getting a Mars Bar can be excruciatingly painful or wondered why the elusive Ken Watt has a question mark after his name, you could very well benefit from haein a shuftie through A Smack In The Pus - as a body kens, there s nothing better than Scots slang for a pithy insult or a well-turned phrase.
