Don't Go Bare Under That Kilt

The Scottish Tartans Authority has decided that "going commando" while wearing a kilt is "childish and unhygenic." An article in London's Daily Telegraph reports:

Tartans Authority director Brian Wilton said kilt wearers should have the "common sense" to realise they should wear underwear beneath their country's national dress.
He said "The idea that you are not a real Scot unless you are bare under your kilt should be thrown into the same wastepaper basket as the idea that you're not a real Scot unless you put salt on your porridge.
"People should not be browbeaten into believing that nonsense. Just because Highlanders wore nothing in the days before Y-fronts were invented doesn't mean that we, in the 21st Century, should wear nothing too.
