I was watching the Scottish news earlier tonight and there was a report about some men who had tried to lure children into their car using a glove puppet. The incident happened in Glasgow and luckily no children were daft enough to get into the car.
Apparently in no time flat there were reports of the incident on the internet but the action had moved to Dundee, Aberdeen,Edinburgh and Fife – where no such thing actually took place according to the police. It’s amazing how things get out of hand so quickly, even without the help of computers. It reminded me of the ancient monologue by Andy Stewart called The Rumour which was really a vehicle for him to show off his skill at different Scottish accents.
The question is: Can anyone understand him because I had some difficulty with parts of it?!
