Haggis in Inuvik: Robert Burns night at the Legion

Tonight at the Legion Hall was Robert Burns night — a tribute to the famous Scottish bard.

The Legion’s volunteers had a very special list of ingredients sent by plane to Inuvik — including the material for haggis: the heart, lungs and liver of a sheep cooked with oatmeal and boiled in its own stomach.

It was delicious.

Robert Burns night is equal parts serious tradition and silliness. After all, the main course is brought in with a near-military reverence and a bagpipe escort.

  2. If you can stomach a stomach
    Perhaps your stomach
    Is thick enough
    That no one else will stomach it
    Such is
    The Pyramid of Digestion
    That got us here
    To the Ultimate Meal
    Of Sacred Haggis
    Cheers
    Sweet Life!
