With only days left before the start of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, a storm has broken over the tricky issue of 'traditional kits'.
Some African teams have decided to exercise their right as Human Beings to choose to wear their traditional kits - in some cases, just a loin cloth - instead of the preferred style of a shirt, shorts and socks.
In a high-level meeting held yesterday, loin cloths were immediately banned, and the brakes were also put on the plans of Cameroon and Ghana to carry spears.
Players from the Ivory Coast will, however, be allowed to wear grass skirts.
An earlier decision to let the Nigerian team wear whatever the fuck they want was also ratified, so long as they don't go kidnapping or killing anyone.
