deb - I'm in love with my soup maker & I don't care who knows it

Today I learnt that the national animal of Scotland is the unicorn.

My brother called and said he was doing an online quiz and it asked what the national animal of Scotland was, giving as the answers a) highland cow; b) unicorn; c) haggis; 4) badger (it wasn't that, but something like); or e) the loch ness monster. He tried highland cow and it said the answer was unicorn - I asked him what the quiz was...What kind of princess are you? smiley - rofl

So of course I had to google it and it's true:

I lived in Orkney for 10 years and never leart this. I'm completely charmed by it

Deb smiley - cheerup

I recently learned this as well. It wasn't from a quiz for me. It was just a meme that said, "Google the national animal of Scotland, you'll be glad you did." I did, and I was. smiley - ok
