Extreme Morris Dancing.

They hit each other’s heads really hard with metal plates and go around skipping so their leg-bells jingle loudly.

My friend Billy had a ten foot willy and he showed it to the girl next door. She thought it was a snake so she hit it with a rake and now it’s only five foot four!

Morris dancing the olympic torch

gigantocellularis:

Torch carrier Gemma David morris dances while carrying the olympic torch. We knew morris would get in there somehow! Not sure which dance it is- looks like a some kind of Princess Royal to me.

NB I didn’t take this footage. If the owner or anyone in the video objects to it being up here send me a message and I’ll take it down.

Jason’s post at The Sky’s Gone Out reminded me of morris dancing, and how much fun it seems!
Photo is of the Hunters Moon Morris Side.
Now to find some nice mixed sides near to New York City! If there aren’t any, maybe it’s time to start one (pagan variety, of course :).
