#1LinerWeds from Jingle Jangle Jungle

Mary Burris over at Jingle Jangle Jungle told a very funny story the other day in her Monday’s Music Moves me post:

I’m Scottish, with a very Scottish maiden name. When my dad was younger, he was very much into genealogy. He learned that some of our ancestors came from Ireland, yet Grandpa Baird was very adamant that we are Scottish. So my dad very boldly asked him one day – ‘Grandpa, why do you insist that we are Scottish if some of our ancestors came from Ireland?’ and Grandpa Baird simply replied with

‘Just because a cat has her kittens in the oven, it doesn’t mean they are biscuits.’
