Mailman wants to wear kilts on mail route…

Good evening, Netizens...

An Oregon U.S. Mailman wants the U.S. Postal Service to give workers the option to wear kilts, or what he calls Male Unbifurcated Garments or MUGS.

Quoting the U.S.A. Today story, the man states, "MUGs are worn all over the world, and have been for thousands of years because they are comfortable," he wrote to other carriers, according to the Globe. "Unbifurcated Garments are far more comfortable and suitable to male anatomy than trousers or shorts, because they don't confine the legs or cramp the male genitals the way that trousers or shorts do."

The final decision obviously lays with the U.S. Postal Service.

Why, sure. Just so long as they don't start playing bagpipes on their route.
