Default World's Funniest Bagpipe Tune Names

What bagpipe tune name (piobaireachd or light) do you find the funniest?

Is there not a piobaireachd entitled, "Let the Dogs Come Hither and Get Their Fill of Flesh"? If I got that wrong please correct me. I could sware I saw that somewhere in a list of piobaireachd titles. By the way, does anyone know the origin or history behind that name (or the correct one, if I got it wrong)? And how exactly, does one "express" such a theme?

'Sons of hounds, come hither and get flesh' was a war cry of clan Cameron. I'm not sure if there's a single tune associated with this. A most warlike tune should do the job of expressing this, lots of bottom hand and a-machs.

Here are a few oddly named tunes:
The MacDonalds Are Simple
The Tattooed Barlady
The Cats Were Raising Hell
The Noose in the Ghillies

There are plenty more, these few just came to mind

Thank you for clearing up my bad memory on that priobaireachd. I have to add that since my wife and daughter have seen some of the unusually titled piobaireachd tunes, we have come up with a few new titles of our own:

"Lament for the Solo Piping Judge" (my wife's)
"Lament for the Unjust Solo Piping Judge" (mine) and
"Lament for Grendel's Barbies" (my daughter's--she's reading Beowulf--don't ask).

Anyone have any other funny pipe tune names (real or imagined)?
