Monday Larf

As usual, blame OldNFO for this one...
The Queen was visiting a military hospital in Scotland. A physician was showing her all the wards.

"Your Majesty, this is our orthopedic unit. You see all these soldiers in casts. They are progressing nicely."

He took her to another ward, where patients were working on exercise machines, and learning how to walk again. "These soldiers are being physically rehabilitated."

They progressed from ward to ward, until they came to a room where there were several Black Watch guardsmen in full kilts, sporran, skean dhu and bonnet. One was reciting,

"O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us

To see oursels as others see us."
Another was declaiming,

"A man's a man for a'that..."

Another was reciting,

"My heart's in the Highlands,

My heart is not here;

My heart's in the Highlands,

A-chasin' the deer..."

The queen asked her guide, "Psychiatric ward?"

Replied the doctor,

[wait for it]
"No, Your Majesty. This is the Serious Burns Unit."

Hey, I warned you, didn't I?

That is all.
