Well, don't forget, there was a German movie from the early 1980's titled DAS BOOT. I suspect a connection there...

Yes, boot and boat. Even the Germans were influenced by the Scottish implications of "boot" and "boat," making the two terms practically synonymous, as synonyms tend to be. Ask any German and he will say, "Die Titanic war ein Kick-Ass-Boot."

And don't forget that the East Germans were under the Soviet thumb when DAS BOOT was made, so maybe ScottSA is on to something after all.

Gentlemen, I believe we have conclusively proved that boys are boys, and girls are girls. Case closed!
