The average height of a Scotsman (standing up) is 5’8”. I am above average at 5′ 8 1/2 “.
At one time I owned a Siamese cat to which I gave a dog’s name, FIDO. It still refused to collect the morning newspapers.
When I was two years old I stole all the flags with the hole numbers from a local putting green. All these years later, golf is still getting its own back on me.
Alex Ferguson, Manager of Manchester United, and I were born in the same street in Govan, Glasgow. He’s 6 years older than me, and has tons more money—but I’m better-looking than he is.
I learned to swim when I was 38— too late to represent Govan at the Olympics or to help significantly with that Titanic business.
As with most adolescents of the 60s, I belonged to a ‘beat group’, (now called ‘bands’), as front lead singer and harmonica player. We were called ‘The Other Side’ and had cards printed with the group’s name on it. People kept turning the cards over and over, so we changed the name of the group to ‘Green Onion’.
The best laugh I ever had in business was over an executive in our group who did all his own travel arrangements as he fancied himself as a bit of a worldly-wise business fellow. On a trip to Scandinavia, he messed up all the arrangements and ended up in towns he’d no knowledge of… We called him the guy who didn’t know his Aarhus from his Oslo.
The first time I saw Billy Connolly perform was on the Michael Parkinson Show in 1975, and he’s made me laugh non-stop ever since. The man’s a comic genius.
