UK Quells Scottish Uprising

London, UK – Scottish lands will remain a part of the United Kingdom, after a narrow ‘no’ vote was tallied late last night.

“We’re disappointed, yet relieved,” said a Scottish official at a local pub. “We still have to deal with those stuck-up Brits, but, on the up-side, we can get back to drinkin’ and not worry about setting debts with a fledgling fiat currency system.” He took a long pull from his flask, adding, “there’s some good Scottish milk right there for ya.”

“This is what I’m talking about!” said a one-percenter. “We gotta rise up and take back our money!” He looked around the Subway, adding, “come on, people, if we all do it, we- hey, who called the cops?”
