A - Z
Oh help ma boab and jings crivvens, what on earth am I going to say about Dundee that hasn't been said before. Well... em... it's got a great pub, and Dundee certainly needs a great pub, given all the juting and jamming and journalism things that have been going on. Because that is what the city is renowned for: its jute manufacture, it's jam making, and its journalism where drouthy hacks wrote about all the jute and the jam then went to the pub for a swally and a piece of cow pie with Oor Willie and the Broon family.
But there's so much more to Dundee than chist a wee guy wi' spiky hair who spends rather far too much of his time perched on a bucket. You can go and learn about jute - I mean, pause for a moment and ask yourself this question: Do I really know what jute is? Then there's an old sailing ship, a bronze statue of Desperate Dan and Minnie the Minx, a stunning railway bridge and so on.
Oh.. and there's also the pub, and a very special pub at that.
So, make up those jeely jam pieces, repeat after me, 'Oh michty me,' one hundred times, and let us be off to somewhere pretty good.
