A nagging question.
I hope you will take solace in my intention to go upstairs and listen to Clark Terry. On vinyl.
The pejorative is fungible, but only to a point. Another cracker can call me out as the cracker I am, but... Border Scots who've been run through Ulster first on the way over are a contentious outfit. Most of us are armed to the teeth. We really shouldn't be allowed to drink alcohol at all, if you think about it. That said, I hope we can share a beer garden some day.
