According to the late Irish comedian Dave Allen, bagpipes were invented by the Irish. They gave them to the Scots, who still haven't caught on to the joke.

All kidding aside, I rather like the pipes. Although I heard a cautionary story of a man who died of laughter while watching a British comedy show on which a Scot was having a Kung Fu battle with his pipes. Predates the Internet, so must be true.

There is an older guy in my town that does a bunch of Rock / Metal on his bagpipes but he doesn't have flames.

That sounds like the Goodies "Ecky Thump" episdode where Bill Oddie defeats allcomers with his Lanacashire martial arts skills. A classic :mrgreen:
