A lot of people thinking @mountaindewUK had no idea how this would be received in Scotland. While I like to think there's a disgruntled copywriter from Bathgate responsible for this beauty. pic.twitter.com/2A9hlGrmXH

Not terribly long ago, The Scotsman newspaper printed a helpful list of 15 words that have alternate meanings in Scotland. It pointed out that pudding has nothing to do with a Jell-O mix but is often a sausage made from pigs’ blood, that messages means grocery shopping, and that if you mince something, you’ve pretty much effed it up.
Unfortunately, the paper failed to include chug on the list, which is why Mountain Dew UK is being dragged across Scottish Twitter for inadvertently telling everyone that they’re chronic masturbators.
