The Broons Wee Book of Wit and Wisdom
Lang may yer lum reek! – May you live long and stay well. Mony a mickle maks a muckle! – Saving a small amount soon builds up to a large amount. Dinnae teach yer Granny tae suck eggs! – Don’t try to teach someone something they already know. Is the cat deid? – Has the cat died? Means your trousers are a bit short – like a flag flying at half mast. For nearly 80 years the Broons have been making us laugh and cry every Sunday and in the annuals that appear in our Christmas stockings. And throughout this time, they have entertained us with their homespun wisdom and comments on everyday and not-so-everyday life. Now, in this Wee Book of Wit and Wisdom, Maw Broon and Scotland’s Favourite Family share some of the pearls of wisdom and funny sayings that have made them think a bit and laugh out loud over the years. From Scots classics to couthy homespun phrases, The Broons Wee Book of Wit and Wisdom has something for everyone.
