SCOTLAND has won the first ever Daily Mash Git of the Year award.
The small, cold, northern European hell-hole beat off stiff competition from rival gits including Russian maniac Vladimir Putin and Anyone Who Lives in a Converted Barn.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: ”All sensible people would agree that Scotland has been a massive pain in the arse this year, not least to itself.
”’Git’ almost seems inadequate, but if we’d used anything stronger someone probably would have reported us on Facebook.
”Scotland can now take pride in being more unpopular than both Vladimir Putin and people who live in converted barns.”
Scotland said: “This is an English conspiracy. I demand a recount.”
The award was based on the votes of over 10,000 misanthropes, whose worthless opinions were then compared to those of a panel of self-appointed experts.
Other runners-up included geriatric cake dictator Mary Berry, largely innocent panda Tian Tian and rapacious corporate beast Apple.
