We'll Just Set Aboot Ye

...is a Scotsman's phrasing of the immortalized "Let's Roll!!" of 9/11 fame.

Translated: 'We'll just deck you.'

Thus spake John Smeaton, now a hero in Scotland (and other parts), who made his bones by 'setting aboot' a terrorist at Glasgow Airport--and by setting his boot in the most sensitive parts of the perp.

The WSJ also brings a Bobby Burns-styled poem, written for Smeato:

Twas doon by the inch o' Abbots
Oor Johnny walked one day
When he saw a sicht that troubled him
Far more than he could say...
Now that's no richt wur
Johnny cried
And sallied tae the fray
A left hook and a heid butt
Required tae save the day.
Now listen up Bin Laden
Yir sort's nae wanted here
For imported English radicals
Us Scoatsman huv nae fear

I, too, saw the article...and all I have to say is let's put "aboot ye" on a LOT of people.

I paypalled the guy $5.00 for a pint 'o his favorite by way of saying "Well done".
