Other than the obvious....

Arabs are what the fans of Dundee United FC are known as. The nickname stems from their excessively sandy football (soccer) pitch, which in turn is due to their geology on the East coast of Scotland.

Fans will often dress for the occasion in a caricatured Westernised robe and headdress, although last time I checked abstention from alcohol was not part of the MO.

6.
Scottish term for a child molester. Stoat is a verb meaning to hit hard and the ba' refers to a ball. Literally thump a football (soccer for you N American eejits). A stoater is something great, especially a goal in football.

How this relates to child abuse I'm not sure but that's what they call it. Stoat the ba's may be in danger of getting chibbed up Bar-L following conviction.
