What do you get when you cross a cheesy pop song with a bunch of pipers and drummers at the Australian Pipe Band Championships? This brilliant video. Best part is 1:03 when Richard Parkes (Pipe Major of Field Marshall Montgomery, the winner's of the 2011 Worlds) makes a guest appearance to tell us that we're beautiful... Haha. I love it. Since this video came out, the Kiwis, Scots and Canadians eh made their own versions. All of them are shown below.
Bagpipe Jokes:

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back country.

As I was not familiar with the area, I got lost; and, being a typical man, I didn’t ask for directions. I finally arrived, an hour late, and saw the funeral director was already gone, and the hearse was nowhere insight. There were only the diggers and crew left, and they were eating lunch. 
I felt bad and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down. The vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've never played before for this homeless man and as I played Amazing Grace, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together.

When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "Sweet Mother of Jesus, I never seen nothin' like that before, and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years!


Tony Blair, the British Prime Minister, is being shown around a hospital. Towards the end of the visit, he is shown into a ward with a number people with no obvious signs of injury or disease.
He goes to greet the first patient and the chap replies:

"Fair fa' your honest sonsie face, Great chieftain e' the puddin' race! Aboon them a' ye tak your place, Painch, tripe, or thairm; Weel are ye wordy o' a grace as lang's my arm."

Tony, being somewhat confused (easily done) goes to the next patient and greets him. The patient replies:

"Some hae meat, and canna eat, and some wad eat that want it, but we hae meat and can eat, and sae the Lord be thankit."

The third starts rattling off as follows:

"Wee sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie, O, what a panic's in thy breastie! Thou need na start awa sae hasty, wi bickering brattle! I wad be laith to rin an chase thee, wi murdering pattle!"

Tony turns to the doctor accompanying him and asks what sort of ward is this. A mental ward?
"No," replies the doctor, "It's the Burns unit."

A highlight of the 2006 Amazing Grace competition at the Red River Workshop in Shreveport, LA. When you play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes, certain parts of the tune can be played with the left/high hand only. During that time, you see how many beers you can chug. Here, Jack Lee does a great job. However, at the start of his second verse, the set of pipes he borrowed fail when the blowpipe shoots out of the stock!
