Burning issue

Monday being the traditional celebration of a certain Scottish poet, my local Waitrose has (oddly, perhaps, since there isn't a noticeable Scottish community in the area) put out a rather large special display of haggis. It looks like a national promotion, since it comes with a glossy poster proclaiming the day.

Only - someone obviously hasn't bothered to check the man's name, so they're suggesting we celebrate something called Burn's Night.

Does no-one care about apostrophes any more?

Gey few, and they're a' deid.
