Dundee Courier and Advertiser Shakespeare Scoop
This is a photie taken by the Courier man when Oor Wullie visited Dundee in 1602 to see one of his plays at the Rep. After the performance he said it would not be a good idea for James to go down to England and be the king as it would cause a lot of shennaniggins in the 20th and 21st centuries. He also predicted that Dundee Football Club would win the Scottish League in 1962 and that just shows that even though he was English he must have been a genius because when he said it Dundee Football Club had not even been invented. He did not however predict that Claudio Caniggia would play for us, so he couldn't have been as great a genius as our own bardie Rabbie who predicted that pandas would spend a while in the zoo in Edinburgh 252 years after he was born. Now that's what I call genius. Is oor Wullie posin' doon here withoot his pail and dungarees ? Ye cannae' really tell, cos the photie's cut aff well abin his knees.
Oor Wullie's lookin sae affie auld Maybe that's because his pow's gone bald.
