This is a public announcement please stop what you’re doing and listen carefully this announcement is brought to you by the Scottish Haggis Tossing Association of Scotland, thank you.

Hi, Joe Smoe, here haggis tossing was first invented in the seventeen hundreds when those English ******* squashed the Jacobite Rebellion to rub salt in the wounds the English would steal the food from the Scot’s tables and the only thing the Scots could do to survive was to pass the food from person to person to stop those English ******** from getting it and so the sport of Haggis Tossing was born. Here to tell you more. That’s right, Joe, we’ve been tossing for over twenty years and not just Scotland.

We’ve been tossing all over the world

Competition rules state that you should balance on an inflatable ball spaced the length of a man apart

You know what they say, Joe.

Some men are longer than others

The aim is to pass the haggis from person to person without falling off the ball or dropping the haggis

You have use a good quality haggis

Ideally caught first thing that morning

The secret of tossing is you’ve got to remember the five T’s of tossing






Gentleman two of those were toss and one began with C

Enough of you backchat, Joe, there’s only two rules that you need to remember

Rule number one; Coach is always right and

Rule number two; In the extremely unlikely event that your coach is ever wrong refer to rule number one

So just remember haggis tossing is a sport of extreme violence and exclusion

So when picking your partner remember to pick the biggest tosser you know

Im BawBag McTavish and I’m Jock McPlop – toss away folks

So as you can see it used to be an Olympic sport it could be again one day

So get your haggis out and lets get tossing

Get tossing
