Got dental surgery today...anticipate feeling like HAMMERED BAT DOOKEY!

Meanwhile, this, from MSNBC:
Kilt-wearing teen seeks dress code change
Principle sparks debate after telling student to wear pants at school dance

JACKSON, Mo. - Nathan Warmack wanted to honor his heritage by wearing a Scottish kilt to his high school dance. Then a principal told him to change into a pair of pants.

What began with a few yards of tartan has sparked an international debate about freedom, symbols and cultural dress. More than 1,600 people have signed an Internet petition seeking an apology for the high school senior.
They don't have no stinkin' kilts in Missouri!!! I've thought about wearing a kilt to the SHOT SHow Outdoor Channel soiree, except that the Clan McBane tartan appears to have been designed by a drunken pimp...very possibly the case, as our most famous fighter — other than the McBane of McBane, Ghellis, who fell at Colloden Moor in 1746 fighting the Damned British — Donald McBane, has this as his biography:
Donald McBane was a soldier, pimp, thief, gambler and duellist. He was also a natural genius with the smallsword, the lighter successor to the rapier...
There you are! I have Brother Donald's book on the shortsword. I wish I had his steel for the Damned Dentist!

I'm killed in the war or hung during peace."
