The Kingdom of Fife; a region in the east of Scotland which contains various towns and villages such as Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, St Andrews, Cardenden, Cowdenbeath and more farms than you could ever need. Fife is most commonly referred to as a 'shitehole full of inbreds' by the rest of Scotland, most likely due to the fact there is an abundance of cheap council housing, which has made Fife an attractive location for those on low incomes and to those on the dole. This means Fife has been tinged with older generation weegies who cannot afford to live in Glasgow and have thus moved across to Fife, resulting in what seems like a poor imitation of Glasgow and an extremely high number of Rangers and Celtic 'fans'. If you were to walk through a park in Fife, at any night of the week you'd more than likely encounter a group of 14/15 year olds drinking '3 bombs' and shagging in the bushes. It is fairly common for children to leave school at 16 in Fife, either to get an apprenticeship or not uncommonly do a beauty therapy/hairdressing course at a local college. Despite all of this, the shit stain that Fife is known as has chundered out some notable success; Adam Smith, Andrew Carnegie, two professional football teams, the sport of golf and one of the most prestigious Universities in the world in St Andrews University. Those who come from Fife are known as Fifers and common words that appear in Fife conversations include; braw, eh, dinny, ken, mortal, pure, likes.
"Where are you from mate?"
"Fife ken, gonnae go in the shop for us and buy me and ma pals a 3 bomb? Gonnae get mortal and watch the mighty Rangers on ma telly. Could ye get me some johnnys too actually?, might be shagging this pure braw bird the night a met down public the other week eh"
