The Scottish Sergeant Major had spent quite a time at the pub, and decided to make his way back to the barracks. He chose to take the path along the fields. Along the way he elects to lay against a tree and snooze a bit. As morning broke two young lassies came upon the sleeping Sergeant Major and realizing he is fast asleep decide to peek to see if was true what they say about men in kilts. One was so impressed she took the ribbon from her hair, and gently tied it to what they had seen. As the sun rose in the sky the Sergeant Major finally awakes and makes his way to the barracks. As he arrives the Lieutenant asks, ?Where have you been, that you are so late getting back??. The Sergeant Major replied: ?Sir, I really don?t know, but it appears that I have won the blue ribbon.?
