    Hebrides: No Need for a Kilt Pin IF .....

    I don't believe this one is geographically restricted as it is part of an internationally available podcast type thingy.

    So apparently there was a story put out about an Island in the Hebrides where they weighted their kiltsndown with lead. CBC ran with it.

    https://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens...sode-1.4731078

    The story is called 'Skirting the Truth' and is just better than half way down the page. In light of the recent discussions on what makes a kilt pin and whether they are necessary or useful I thought this rather timely and quite possibly a respite from all the serious pin talk.

    Cheers!

    The BBC has a tradition of April Fools pranks. I am reminded of the Spaghetti harvest. Many people who saw it fell for it, and 20 years after I met people who insisted it was true because they saw it on the BBC.

    You mean to say that the BBC would make up news!
