    Take a minute or two away from PC talking and see if you can answer this?
    Who do you possibly think could have come up with the saying "Haud yer
    wheesht", have I spelt it right, probably not. Meaning, 'don't speak, keep
    silent'. Know any more?

    I saw the link while researching the saying, but I didn't see where
    the poem was the origin of the phrase, so I didn't post it.
    Was the poem indeed the origin of the phrase, or was the already known
    phrase simply part of the poem?

    Isn't it amazing how things are uncovered sharing a bit of fun. I didn't
    even know it was used in a poem. What was the poem called, I would like to
    read it.

    When I was living in France, I had a couple of friends from Scotland.
    One of them was originally from the Caribbean, so she was able to
    translate for the other girl. They were a kick though. Very
    interesting listening to her speak French with the accent.
