Here's why Twitter is full of men who aren’t wearing underwear
We’ll try to keep it brief.

FELLAS FROM THE four corners of the globe have ditched their boxers and tightie whiteys today and Twitter just can’t stop talking about it.

The boys have shed their undergarments in aid of male cancer awareness, #goingcommando to raise funds as part of a campaign.

The charity hopes to raise awareness about the disease and reduce the embarrassment associated with getting those all-important health checks.

And it seems as though the lads have well and truly embraced the opportunity to run free, taking to Twitter in their droves to share their experiences.

Some got off to a flying start, finding it no bother at all to get into the spirit.

These guys didn’t REALLY think it through, unfortunately.

They should really have taken a leaf out of this lad’s book.

Meanwhile, others were grappling with the weather.

And a select few were so happy that they decided to take it up full time.

It wasn’t all plain sailing: There was confusion and worry lurking around every corner.


But the spirit of the day remained alive and well.

And the charity seemed fairly happy too.
