Ah another Pratchet fan?

Pity the title gave away a huge chunk of the plot.

What do you mean send up?

some of the most factually correct facts I know about folk singers morris dancers and Llamedians seem to be written down in the disc world books - except maybe about looking a bit Elvish.

I learned the Sweet Polly Oliver version at school in South Yorkshire, along with songs about frogs getting eaten and mermaids telling their woes.

I do wonder just how many female soldiers/drummer boys/sailors there actually were.

I do take my drum to Sidmouth each year to join in the seafront motley morrising, but there would be no way I'd ever pass as non female. Maybe it is all the hormones they feed the farm animals on, but there are very few of the female persuasion over ten years old who could ever pass as a man these days - well - normal man - there are some web pages that I just don't believe -
