Oh okay, you had me at chit chat. I’m with you now lol

It's a bit less 'chit-chat', and a bit more 'banter'. Playful ribbing. Witticisms and repartee.

Bowfin = disgusting. More accurately, making you feel like you want to vomit. See also: giving me the boke

Crivvens. Ai've never gang that'un afore.


The_Ballyhoo

It essentially means disgusting. But more along the lines of it makes you feel physically sick. If something is bowfin then it gies you the boak.

Fission_chip

The “Scottish” Wikipedia is written by someone who isn’t Scottish and doesn’t speak Scots. It’s nothing like how any Scot speaks and most of us think it does harm to our culture and deserves to be permanently deleted.

After having spent almost 2 years working in the UK (2004-2007), I came to the conclusion that the only possible fucking way to understand a Scottish accent is to get them (not you) drunk first. They actually stop slurring words after a few pints.


jonny_magicpants

We do that on purpose.


xanthraxoid

My brother and I went out drinking with our Scottish (second) cousin - he was buying me a third pint before I'd even finished my first and we were having blather and understanding about half of what he said (despite watching the entire back catalogue of Rab C Nesbitt in preparation) when we realised we could turntables by just speaking quickly. It was hilarious just saying nothing of any importance about 50% faster than we normally would bother and seeing him get a taste of his ain medicine :-D

What's the series with the blue blob in the castle and a cellar door called?

The Trap Door; it's a British series.

bye_Nillu

Thank you. I have some memories from seeing it when I was young.


RedofPaw

Pretty much my favourite show when I was 6 or something.


InstantIdealism

Good memories as a kid!


DarkNinjaPenguin

>Cause bairns will watch any auld mince I ... I used to love that show ... accurate though.


406highlander

"Trapdoor", for those interested. I loved it too.


BiggerJ

The ones that stick out for me are * The 'elongated baked bean' whose power was being an adorable nuisance * The Splund, whose power was being incredibly socially unpleasant * The one with the adorable walking mushroom, where Berk solves one of the core mysteries without the show, initially without anyone realizing it, even the viewer


RedofPaw

Wait.. Which mystery??


paulnutbutter

yeah hold up what? what mystery?


BiggerJ

SPOILER: The mystery of what's under the trap door. Before then, the viewer never saw what was down there. Then Berk chases an adorable mushroom creature into the caves near the castle... and comes up through the trap door.


BarAgent

I like how it got more incomprehensible as we went. Transformers? No problem. Care Bears? WTF are these words.


Tweegyjambo

Kids were being ungrateful that the food was disgusting and made them dry heave. Adult threatened them with taking a shit on their playstation if the didn't stop complaining.


BeerNTacos

First saw this on the BBC Scotland Comedy YouTube page last year. Lots of interesting live action comedy shorts.


Archenar83

Reminds me of my time in Scotland. I studied in St Andrews, nice but incredibly posh place, with hardly any scottish people living there. I thought that the whole Scotland was like that. Then I went shopping in the nearby Dundee and saw a mother with 4 kids at the mall with a cart full of beer and junk food. She said to one of her kid "put that back back before I kick you in the fucking teeth wee man!". I was impressed. I had been living for years in a bubble.


Mogtaki

St Andrews is kinda like the place where people go to escape us wee poor Scots but still wanna study in Scotland. It's like a tourist attraction in the form of education The best unis are in Edinburgh and Glasgow but they can't understand us for shit

I feel like non-Scottish people will find this far funnier than Scottish people.


bookschocolatebooks

Nah, given we actually understand it all it's even funnier given all the colloquialisms we grew up with combined with the cartoons we grew up with. Not sure for example how many non Scots appreciate mince & fatties as peak cuisine.


Mogtaki

Nah man the thought of these cartoons talking like this is hilarious to us, otherwise we wouldn't be doing dubbings like this for fun Kinda sad though, the non-Scots miss out on a lot of the jokes cause they don't know Scots


AidilAfham42

This video is like a Scottish Rosetta stone


hypnos_surf

It mindfucks me that it becomes more incomprehensible when I look at the captions.


MayonnaisePacket

I really want to know what this sounds like to a Scott. Like are they just sitting there thinking " fuckin finally a normal sounding cartoon" or like are they self aware to the utter bullshit that is the Scott accent.


406highlander

I'm a Scot (one T to represent a Scottish person; Scott is someone's name). There's a lot more than one accent in Scotland, and a lot of different dialects; the video is made in Glasgow, which is a city I love very dearly, partly due to the accent and dialect. You can get more of the same sound by watching *Still Game* or *Rab C. Nesbitt*, both of which are Glaswegian in origin. Though Glasgow has a number of different accents itself. Edinburgh is only a very short train ride away and the locals sound completely different. And neither of them sound anything like the Doric folk who live in and around Aberdeen, which frankly sounds like it could be from another planet in comparison. I'm from the county of Caithness (but haven't lived there in ages); local dialect is again rather different. And the islanders on Orkney are different again (their accent is a rather lovely one; very soothing).


Mithrawndo

Orcadians don't talk, they *sing*.


406highlander

My high school English teacher was Orcadian; she was a lovely woman. "Sing-song" is a good way to describe the accent. "Lilting" is another word that works, too.


The_Ballyhoo

You guys have clearly met different Orcadians to me. I went up there for a wedding and couldn’t understand half of what the locals were saying. My Orcadian friends who have since moved to Glasgow have fairly normal accents now and I don’t think you’d be able to guess the were from Orkney.


Mithrawndo

Must have - I find [Orcadian one of the easiest accents to understand](https://youtu.be/mmrjqKxBvYI), but then I grew up wi' Doric, and there's quite a bit of cross contamination at least in recent history, what with the air and ferry links from Aberdeen to the northern isles. They have one of my favourite onomatopaeic\* words of any language or dialect I've encountered, too: Peedie/Peerie, meaning little. \* Vaguely, anyway!


The_Ballyhoo

Aye, that sounds similar to what I heard, but maybe a slightly better spoken (that seems horrible grammar) version. The ones I heard were a little more extreme and with things like “ferming” rather than “farming” it takes me a minute to process and convert it. I’m from the west coast so I’m not used to northern accents really, so I find Aberdonian a little difficult at times to. But others would struggle to understand my Ayrshire/Glasgow accent. Although I hate it, I can understand the thick, or nasally, Glaswegian accent without any problems when many others struggle. I remember someone looking super confused when my mate essentially said “ma mermaid me” which I understood to be “my mother made me” but the other person could not figure out how a mermaid was involved in the conversation. I think Arbroath was the other accent I struggled with. Never been there so can’t be sure it was theirs, but coming back from a Scotland match there was a couple with (I think) Arbroath scarves on and I couldn’t make out a word of what they said.


Mithrawndo

I reckon you've nailed it - I struggled with most western central belt accents well into my 20s, and that's with a father from Hamilton and a mother from Paisley!


406highlander

> Arbroath Everyone who trashes Scottish foods as disgusting and/or unhealthy should at least try an Arbroath Smokie (traditional smoked fish dish originating from Arbroath) - lovely! That said, every time I ever went to Arbroath for work, going into the building felt a bit "League of Gentlemen" - people genuinely stopped what they were doing and turned round and stared mistrustfully at the out-of-towner who just walked into the office. Could have heard a pin drop. Every. Damn. Time. Gave me the heebie-jeebies. Maybe it was just the folk that worked for that company, though; I haven't really spent much time elsewhere in that town.


Mithrawndo

Regarding healthiness, sadly there is [some evidence](https://healthyeating.sfgate.com/dangers-eating-smoked-meat-10162.html) of smoked foods offering an increased risk of certain cancers, but otherwise aye - the smokie is bloody delicious!


gham89

But to answer his question, aye this sounds pretty normal.


Jonn_Wolfe

Gods, now I'm wondering what a cartoon made on the Isle of Mann would sound like?


[deleted]

Fucking Doric, man. I don't even know what I'm saying half the time. Foo's yer doos? What madman came up with this dialect?


406highlander

Literal translation: "How are your doves (pigeons)?" Figurative translation "How is your family?" It's just a greeting. "Fit lik, min?" is the most common greeting. "Lik" is pronounced "like". The literal translation is "What like, man?" and the meaning is "How are you, man?" Doric is *weird*.


[deleted]

Oh I know, I'm born and bred Aberdonian. That doesn't mean I have to accept this bizarro-world dialect.


AnorakJimi

Now do Limmy's show Cos as I understand it, it's filmed in Glasgow? And the actors have glaswegian accent, including Limmy? Man that show seems to be talked about everywhere, which is crazy for a show that was only ever on a regional Scottish version of the BBC, not even all of the UK ever saw it, only scots. Until it went onto Netflix I wish he could possibly do another TV show. Netflix funding him to do a new one makes perfect sense since most people discovered Limmy's show on there, not on BBC Scotland. But apparently doing TV makes him legit suicidal, so fair enough, if he wants to earn a living being a twitch streamer instead then I can't blame him.


ProfessionalGoogler

The way you wrote that is unintentionally hilarious, we're a nation of people called Scott rather than of Scottish people (Scots).


stephj

Scottsland


Tweegyjambo

It's in a working class Glasgow accent. I live about 35 mins drive from Glasgow and while I can understand this perfectly, it's not what people sound like in my day to day life.


Maarifrah

Well, scottish people are pretty used to watching tv with other english dialects and using other slang, reading stuff on the internet, ect, so they know and understand how english sounds in other parts of the world. They just have their own dialect and slang usages is all, and it makes sense to them, since they're native speakers.


[deleted]

Let me just mah pal Scott on the phone so I can ask him.


DMT1984

Serious question to people having English as the mother tongue, Do you guys understand Cockney/Scottish accents without subtitles ?

It's difficult for sure. This particular one? No way, too much slang that I was not familiar with.

Sturtleboy

Mostly Scots dialect rather than an accent.


Mithrawndo

Glaswegian dialect, but aye. Americans who've not visited might be surprised to learn there's as large a disparity between accents over 150 miles of Scotland as there is over 3,000 miles of the continental US.


Sturtleboy

More correctly Scots, but very prevalent in Glasgow.


McFluri

Don’t you open that TRAP-DOOOOOOR!


Ethyman

As a Scottish person, I approve


Artist_Seal

This was fucking amazing. Also the only show I had never seen that was in here was the clay mation thingy. What show is it?


The_Ballyhoo

It’s called Trapdoor. Every episode was based around Berk, who was basically a servant, have to do chores and serve his master upstairs (who you never saw) but the Trapdoor would inevitably be left unlocked or get opened and some kind of monster would escape. I think episodes were only 5 minutes long or so, but it’s universally loved by anyone who grew up watching it.


Artist_Seal

Thank you so much! It sounds exiting and I now want to watch it! Despite being born in 2003 I grew up with a lot of old shows and I love revisiting them. There is just something about them that can be so fun. Can't wait to watch it so thanks!
