    You probably have to be Scottish to get this one:

    and what is it that a Scottish person would "get" ?

    Buckfast (a wine tonic brewed by monks) is the drink of choice for the 'ned' subculture (a term originally coined by police to mean 'non-educated delinquent'). 'Ned culture' is so prominent that it not only is is it a massive stereotype, but also features in many comedy sketches. 'Bucky' plays a central role being their preferred choice of cheap booze.

    The english equivalent is 'chav'

    Right. Still missing the pun.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought "How can they limit to just one pun each day?"

    Now I see how... :tongue2:

    I don't get it but perhaps the pun is contained in this little song:
    What do ye get when ye drink the wine?
    A ten pound fine an'a year's probation,
    A kick in the baws at the polis station.
    AWWWwwwww, never drink the wine again!
    AWWWwwwww, never drink the wine again!

    I guess it's something football hooligans sing.

    Any pun that requires this much discussion is not a good pun :smile:

    Yeah, I had to google a bit to make any sense out of it and I could still be wrong. Some would say any pun is not a good pun. I rather like puns though. :tongue:
