I love this one, Jingles.

We were recently discussing various words for laughing on my blog, on the post on 'chortle'. This is a great addition - I put it in a comment linking to this post.

Thanks for a great word : o )

Oh, I missed your 'chortle' day!

The Scots have a lot of very descriptive words for many occasions.
I'm surprised a lot of them haven't found more usage in everyday language.
Working on that!
