However, there is a subspecies which is left handed and these obviously have the shorter legs on the other side of their body. They are sought after because they are said to taste better. I trust this clarifies the situation.
It does. I would like to forward my apologies for posting erroneous information (although I did cite my source), and I trust this has not caused any distress or insult for any more knowledgeable parties?
I look forward to a day when all will know the full truth about the elusive creatures Haggis seem to be, and from this fount of knowledge can build a more stable and prosperous future for all, be they Scottish or otherwise, Human or Haggis. It is from such humble beginnings as Ribnet posts that legend and carefully reasoned fact are developed, and I have a deep respect for Mr. jwalker as a scotsman having shared with us less enlightened ribnetters his, perhaps hard earned, knowledge on the Haggis.
Above comments notwithstanding, I would like to point out that, certainly from my perspective, the collective society that is Ribnet values the knowledge of all Haggis, be they 4 legged, or the certainly possible 3 legged variety. Haggis, and their contribution to society is not something that can be measured by counting the number of legs, it is what is inside that counts, and I propose that ALL haggis are given the opportunity to shine, and equal rights are given to there potentially rare differently abled haggis, with less than the commonly accepted as standard 4 legs.
