What is it about underpants that are inherently funny? I definitely laughed aloud at this one!

Of course he isn't buying them. He steals them!

Iain's underpants stealing is later in the course. Let's not reveal spoilers!

I thought it was Màiri stealing the underpants. Lol

Too much information, I say!!!

Anyone else finding it difficult to differentiate between when the speaker says 'Iain' & when they say 'Eun'?

Still catches me out sometimes... the English "Ian" sounds like "eun", the Gaelic "Iain" is more of an "Eey-iang" (for want of a better way of writing it)

Is he not the one who doesn't wear them anyway?
