Throughout the pandemic, Janey Godley provided much-needed relief on social media with her gallus Glesga interpretations of the First Minister’s public briefings, now transcribed for this hilarious compilation. Who can resist: “Ye’ve been TELT. Everybuddy’s gonnae die if yeez aw keep gaun aboot an meetin each other an gaun hame wi a virus oan ye. If Ah see any o you oot there, Ah’m gonnae take a run an pit ma toe up the crack o yer arse.”
