Slow Scots

The slow neurons reminds me of my wife's favourite joke. You see there is this big dinner party and the speaker doesn't want to embarrass any of the guests so he starts by asking if there are any Scots present. There is no response but he asked again to be sure. Still no response so he launches into the joke: "You see there was this Scotsman and you all know how slow Scotsman are ...". He is interrupted by an irate guest (imagine Glasgow accent here): "Hang on mon, I'm a Scotsmon!".

Now whenever the kids have one of those slow moments followed by an 'Aha' flash of inspiration, my wife looks at me and says: "Must be the Scottish blood".
