Doak Gates

Maist youngsters nooadays git thir adrenaline rush fi GTA San Andreas, bit in OOR day it took a trip ower the doak gates ti git the hert pumpin. Yince ower we could settle doon ti a gid day's fishn, with the catch occasionally made up i Flounder, Mudskipper and Eel (nightmare ti git the hook oafy) bit mair likely ti be crab, yased fanny pad or, on one occasion, a large bra.
