Refuweegee

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/21/syrian-refugees-in-scotland-cold-weather-but-warm-welcome Takes its name from the slang term for a Glaswegian – Weegee. It is the brainchild of Selina Hales, a city native who was prompted by news coverage of Syrians travelling across Europe seeking shelter. Its volunteers are putting together welcome packs, which include a handwritten letter from a local as well as Glasgow-appropriate items including obligatory umbrellas. “I wanted to capture that real Glasgow welcome,” says Hales. “People don’t just want to welcome people but to embrace them and make them feel like a local.”

Presumably they weren't welcoming them with "a wee dram" and halal haggis, or should that be "Halesal haggis"?

Probably presented with Irn Bru and Vegetarian Haggis

But there is a halal version

Not so sure whether they got around to the greasy Scotch Pie yet or Forfar Bridies

I have to admit i never heard or used the word Weegee until i was in the Post Office.
