The owner of a tiny Scottish island which advertised for new residents has received interest from 150 people.
The National Trust for Scotland announced at the weekend that it was offering two homes for rent on the Hebridean island of Canna.

Currently, the farming and crofting community has just 15 inhabitants.

subsistence does have a nasty gay sound to it.

"Canna"??????????

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

"Canna (http://www.wordreference.com/iten/canna)" is the most common and popular slang in italian for joint (i.e. a marijuana rolled cigarette)
Probably from Cannabis, probably as it literally means hose, organ pipe, cane (hollow stem like bamboo), chimney smokestack
:D

ROTFL "farming & crofting" on Canna
heeeeeehehehehewhew

The trust is hoping that the new families, with the right kind of skills, will be able to secure the long-term survival of Canna

:lol:

Scottish Islands don't have bylaws forcing you to marry inlaws.

Twat.

so they marry inlaws by choice? or lack of other viable option?

Cruddy

So they don't spend the rest of their lives on the island.

Move there, raise a family, get out.

Does that make sense or do I have to resort to line drawings and a stick with nails in it?

It was a joke.

I think the gene pool of 15 families is immense when compared to the house of Saxe-Koburg-Gotha.
