You know what “going commando” means, right? Yep, it means not wearing underwear. There are a number of reasons why a person might not wear underwear.
1.) He does not own any underwear.
2.) All of his underwear is dirty.
3.) There are no other reasons not to wear underwear.
Despite the above, kilt-wearing Scots are famous for going commando. In fact, the rule was that if you had underwear on under your kilt, you weren’t a real Scotsman.
But it’s the 21st century, and even kilt-wearers need to start pulling on some skivvies. At least, that’s the message that the Scottish Tartans Authority is sending. Its officers say that NOT wearing underwear beneath a kilt is “childish and unhygienic.”
