Curried Giraffes

Curry finally on Gaelic menu as 2000 words added to language

One of the new Gaelic words is "giraffe", or indeed "sioraf", which I expect will be very useful as the Utter Hebrides are overrun with the creatures...

Actually, I wish they taught us Gaelic at school, at least a wee bit. It's just embarassing to go up to the Highlands and not be able to pronounce the road signs. I keep trying to learn, but I'm rubbish at languages (no patience) and it's a terribly difficult language to get your head round.
