    Haha, I'm Glaswegian and do kind of do this to my friends but I don't think it's a Scottish thing particularly, depends on their sense of humour

    I am Glaswegian, and yes that is true but I don't think it is unique to Scotland. I think it is just British humour in general

    No, that isn't.

    But the voracious sexual appetite and cannibalism stuff is true.

    I think rude might be the wrong word lol, but they can be a bit blunt and are not afraid of sticking up for themselves, lovely people over all though

    I thought the same thing, our self deprecating humour However my Scottish friends (guys especially) are fairly insistent its a Scottish phenomenon as Blondie put it. Maybe its showing off :lol:
