    When Howard asked Eric if he would wear a kilt (rather than a dress), Eric responded "well, I am of Irish Heritage".

    Nobody said anything that I heard. I thought that was funny.

    Then I looked it up and apparently while there are some "irish kilts", it was a thing that only started 100 years ago and isn't widespread. Anyone think Eric and Howard knew about early 19th century wearing of kilts in Ireland to show Celtic pride?

    I'm only 1/4 Irish so I don't claim to be an expert or anything, but my great grandfather (who immigrated from Ireland) always told me that kilts were for fags, no one he knew in Ireland ever wore one and the Irish only started wearing them because the Scots had used them as a sign of independence (when the British authorities outlawed them). So yeah, Howard and Eric are both full of shit, but so are a lot of Irish Americans as well.

    Do you know why Scotsmen wear kilts? Because sheep can hear a zipper a mile away.

    Here's what Wikipedia says anyway, so maybe my great grandpa was right:
