Tactical Weapon Development

Long ago, the Scots devised a fearsome battle tactic. As the Scots neared their enemies, they would take cats, swing them ’round and round above their heads. Then the cats would be sent sailing through the air and land, clawing and biting, among the Scot’s foes. This was very effective. Word got out of this fearsome stratagem, and soon just the sound of the cats, howling and screaming as they were whirled over the heads of the Scotsmen, was enough to send even battle-hardened foes into full retreat.

But the Scots began to run out of cats.

So they invented the Scottish bagpipe as a substitute.

And now you know … the rest of the story.

  1. Actually bagpipes were in the area called Turkey long before the Scots began to use them.

    • Interesting. Perhaps the Turks were the ones originally slinging cats at their enemies and the Scots just picked up on it.
