Every year the The Burryman makes his appearance at the Ferry Fair Festival. It has now been revealed how he copes with all that whisky.

Don't be fooled. If I know Australians, and I do, this is just an elaborate scheme some clever drunk came up with to score some free booze.

These pictures, originally made for FUN, cover the annual preparation and pergrination of The Burry man (or Burryman), who walks around South Queensferry one Friday every August - to safeguard the herring catch.

Herring catch: Let's nae be caught this year! Let's tell them, fook it, we're nae gonna be eaten this year!

Burryman: Could someone scratch my back? I canna reach it in a' these burrrs.

Herring catch: Fook. It's him. We're for it, lads.

If I try to say "I'm the Ferry Fair Burryman" in a Scottish accent, I already sound drunk.

The Internets is a series of tubes... with whiskey at the end of it.

You'd have to get me to drink a lot of whiskey before I'd get into one of those outfits. Looks painful.
