Pin a large picture of something else, such as a house full of household items, or a weather map, or a school, to the wall, and ask students to suggest labels and descriptions in Scots words. What words do they particularly like or dislike, and why?

Alternatively, use to analyse the art of presenting comedy to an audience. Ask students to identify how Susan tries to engage her audience. They could look for examples of topical reference, direct address, anecdote, visual humour and self-mocking.
