On Jan. 25, people the world over will mark the birthday of Robert Burns, Scotland's most celebrated bard, by listening to his poem Address to a Haggis and eating great helpings of the dish.

The "great chieftain o' the puddin'-race," as Burns refers to it in the poem, is a mixture of sheep organs mixed with oatmeal, suet and spices, and traditionally stuffed into the animal's own stomach.

Poet and author Ian Blake recently penned a post-script to Address to a Haggis, inspired by his haggis-related airport bomb scare.
