Len Wallace Help me undestand Morris Dancing (79* d) RE: Help me undestand Morris Dancing 30 Sep 99


Yup, Valerie Rogers (Stan's mom) once related to me that Stan disliked Morris Dancers and that he really was surprised when one of their favorite tunes to dance to was his song "The Idiot". somehow he found it appropriate.

I could never figure out who Morris was myself and why men are given sticks, some of them dressing as women and then trying to beat themselves with them.

Okay, okay . . it's a joke!

Speaking of jokes... What do you call annoying dancing people who hang around folk music festivals?

Morris Dancers!

It's a JOKE!!! Sheeesh... I'll make sure my back's not left unprotected at my next festival.
