    As a Scotsman, that was very funny to watch, especially the pronunciation. If you ever want to test how Scottish some is ask them to say murder, it should sound like it is spelled muurrrdirr.

    A true Scotsman can never do the red lorry yellow lorry tongue twister - I find it almost impossible even after living outside of Scotland for 33 years.

    Do they refer to semis as lorries? I drove across the US for the better part of 15 years, with close to 2.5 million KM.

    Whilst HGVs (heavy goods vehicles) is commonly used for the bigger trucks, like semis, a lorry is commonly used to describe all trucks bigger and more robust than vans. This may be specific to the lowlands where I come from, so you may get a different view from the highlands.
