From Why Did the Haggis Cross the Road? by Stuart McLean

 

Haggis Jokes Tam goes into his local fish and chip shop. “Two haggis suppers Toni,” he calls across the counter.

“Wow, your really pushing the boat out tonight,” says Toni. “Did you win the lottery?”

“Naw,” says Tam, “But I did win third prize in a Sunny Govan Radio contest – here’s the voucher for my grub.”

“Well done mate,” says Toni. “So what were the other prizes?”

“Second prize was a single haggis supper,” says Tam.

 “And first prize?” enquires Toni.

“Jist the chips,” says Tam.
