If all Scotsmen think they are a comedians, then the Herald newspaper's daily Diary column is their jokebook. When true life cartwheels over into humour or a joke is cracked in a Scottish office, bar or playground, it usually ends up in the Diary. The year 2011 has brought us royal weddings, Scottish elections, tumbling house prices, headline-grabbing football matches and dire weather. Yet Scots smiled through the lot, and told the Diary about it. This volume brings the very best tales from the column, proving that ordinary Scots are still the natural comedians of the world.

It was a memorable year for Scotland and we kept ourselves busier than Gordon Ramsay's bleep machine. After a fair bit of arguing we voted on independence, we welcomed the Commonwealth Games to Glasgow with some interesting Team Scotland uniform designs and many of us admired the sublime golfing skills of Europe and the USA as they battled it out at Gleneagles for the Ryder Cup. We also watched another World Cup without a Scotland team, with just a little schadenfreude?to ease our national pain. Meanwhile, we ate, drank, complained about the weather and had a good laugh about it all. And, as usual, your tales of the funniest events appeared in the Herald newspaper's iconic 'Diary' column. Now, the best of them are gathered here, ready to entertain?at a moment's notice and make you cry with laughter.? And there's some right wee stoaters!
SAD to hear of the death in 2011 of retired football commentator David Francey,
whose distinctive passionate voice was always recognisable. The story was told
that BBC Scotland in the 1970s held a David Francey soundalike competition.

You can have a lot of laughs in ten years, which is why we have collected the very best of the amusing stories encountered by the readers of The Herald Diary column over the past decade. There was even a Scottish Labour Prime Minister all those years ago, Celtic fans could only dream that their team would begin its quest for 10 titles in a row, and the word Covid was simply a typing error for David or cove. So as everyone could really do with a smile just now, we have combed well over two thousand Diary columns to bring the best of what made Scots laugh over the last ten years, whether it is the sharpest humour from pubs, the daft things children say or the humour from all sides of Scottish courts, the very best are here.

On a crisp fall day in October of 1862, a precocious seventeen-year-old boy went into a bookshop in his hometown of Hagerstown, Maryland, and purchased a composition book. Into his new diary, John R. King would steadfastly record what he did, saw and heard daily, as the Civil War raged around him. During May of 1862, after learning the photography trade, John took portraits of Union soldiers stationed in the Shenandoah Valley. Then, on May 23, 1862, when he heard the sounds of battle, he attempted to flee on a wagon. He was soon captured by Stonewall Jackson's troops. His treasured diary was taken. Force marched to a Confederate prison, John vowed revenge. Two weeks after escaping from captivity, John joined the Union Army. He fought with fury, courage and valor, was wounded three times and became a war hero. Later, John was not only appointed by two presidents to prestigious positions in the Pension Bureau, but he also became leader of the Grand Army of the Republic. After being lost for 150 years, his diary was recently discovered and is now being published.

Made into a major motion picture starring Johnny Depp, The Rum Diary—a national bestseller and New York Times Notable Book—is Hunter S. Thompson’s brilliant love story of jealousy, treachery, and violent lust in the Caribbean. Begun in 1959 by a twenty-two-year-old Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary is a brilliantly tangled love story of jealousy, treachery, and violent alcoholic lust in the Caribbean boomtown that was San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the late 1950s. The narrator, freelance journalist Paul Kemp, irresistibly drawn to a sexy, mysterious woman, is soon thrust into a world where corruption and get-rich-quick schemes rule and anything (including murder) is permissible. Exuberant and mad, youthful and energetic, this dazzling comedic romp provides a fictional excursion as riveting and outrageous as Thompson’s Fear and Loathing books.

This is the true story of Australia's worst convicted female serial killer, Kathleen Folbigg.
Author: Matthew Benns
Publisher: Random House Australia
This is the true story of Australia's worst convicted female serial killer, Kathleen Folbigg. Kathleen's children, Caleb, Patrick, Sarah and Laura Folbigg, died one by one over a 10-year period in similar circumstances - suddenly, unexpectedly and while sleeping. Each time, it was Kathleen who raised the alarm to her husband, Craig. When the Folbiggs' marriage fell apart after the death of their fourth child, Craig was devastated. He discovered Kathleen's diary in her bedside drawer, filled with ramblings about losing control with the children and her 'terrible thoughts'. The diary was the crucial evidence detectives had been searching for and in 2003 Kathleen Folbigg was jailed for forty years. After her conviction she and her supporters fought hard, protesting her innocence. At her trial she'd allowed her diaries to speak for her. They did, damningly. But what if she were able to explain her entries? Medical and legal experts brought pressure on the NSW attorney-general to order a judicial inquiry into her conviction. Finally, in 2019, Folbigg had the chance to speak for herself. This updated book takes us from the discovery of each of her children's bodies, through Folbigg's own tragic past, to her long-awaited explanation of what happened to Caleb, Patrick, Sarah and Laura. The outcome is a searing look into the mind of Australia's worst female serial killer
