If you've ever been to one of those infamous "McGonagall Supper" events ... this story on the BBC site today will surely raise a wry smile :-)
... for those that unfortunately don't know - a "McGonagall Supper" is akin to the absolute antithesis of a very traditional "Burns Supper" evening.
... everything is 'conducted backwards' and a general sense of chaos ensues - not to mention the bizarre experience of the whole event starting with coffee, then sweet, then main course etc. :-))
Some details can be found here.
A well-constructed "McGonagall Supper" can be extremely funny - so if you ever see one advertised, I'd definitely encourage attendance!
