    Oh dear lord. I can but apologise, on the behalf of my nation, for the export of these vile instruments of torture to the fine country of Mexico. I cannot think of anything any Mexican has ever done to warrant such a cruel and unusual punishment…

      I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equaled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.
