Here's a hazard....

....of being good friends with missionaries to Scotland. It brings to mind a great work of Robert Bruce.
Fair fa your honest sonsie face
Great chieftan o' the puddin' race!
Aboon them a ye take your place
painch, tripe, or thairm
Weel are ye worthy of a grace
As lang's my arm.

We'll see how it comes out with potatoes and bashed Swedes (turnips).

Vegetarian haggis?!?! What the...?!?!?

That's kind of like oxygen free water or vegan pork chops, isn't it?

It's probably some evil concoction from the same philosophical brewery as Tofurkey. At least in this case, it couldn't really be worse than the real thing.

I'm with pentamom.

Take out the meat, and nothing's left but oatmeal.

There should be a certain level of "haggis" in haggis before they can call it that.

And if you want to eat oatmeal in the Scottish style, be sure to salt it instead of using sugar!
