Enter the Haggis

I will spare you the revolting picture of a haggis on Wikipedia, but I'll supply a definition of haggis. It's a bunch of sheep organs mixed with some spices and oatmeal, and boiled in a stomach. Mmm--anyone want to come over to the vegetarian side with me? Vegetarian haggis does exist, but I have no idea what it contains. The best-case scenario is probably soft tofu. Now that I've grossed everybody out, I think Enter the Haggis is a pretty fine name for a band. It's amusing and a little juvenile (does anyone need to wonder whether this band was named by a guy or a girl?). The problem is, the name won't age well. Enter the Haggis is unlikely to produce works of genius. If they became really well-known and respected, I think they would be a little embarassed by their name. That's the problem with jokey names.

Enter the Haggis: 5.9

I actually was around people eating actual haggis at the Celtic fair in Richmond. I didn't eat any. Totally nasty.
