When I lived in Tianjin, an hour from Beijing
There were a few Irish bars. One day I went to one and there was a drunk Scottish bloke in double denim, white socks and trainers, getting the staff to play "Loch Lomond", "Sailing" and "Caledonia's Everything I've Ever Had". Now I'm as Scottish as a kilt-wearing crap-at-football whisky-soaked haggis, but... when he came up to yabber drunken shite at me, I pretended I was English.
