On the OP, it completely makes sense and is a good social commentary on people's attitudes towards Dundee.

People see the magnificent yet different Dundonians as monsters, yet, as the story unfolds, we find the real monster is in fact Dr Frankenstein himself while the monster (Dundonians) is the only one with any real grasp of humanity.

So what Shelley was trying to say was that weegies are up themselves, or something like that anyway.

Perhaps the script writers for The Hills Have Eyes and Deliverance got their inspiration from life in Dundee.Seems perfectly plausible.

I'd liken Dundee more to Animal Farm as they're sub-human. Pigs, basically. And they get pumped by Germans with mullets like in m...eh, those videos.

Mate used to have a German one where this guy brings out a huge bag of mince - must be about 5kg - dumps it on the kitchen table then gets this bird, sits her on the mince then gets in about her. WTF?
