    Morris dancing or Riverdancing?

    Well, which do you prefer?
    The traditional English Morris dancing with a bunch of blokes jumping up and down waving hankies about.


    or the traditional Irish folk dancing whith a bunch of young ladies jumping up and down waving their legs about.

    Morris dancing.

    One of my favorite moments of "I'm sorry I'll Read That Again'

    Sheriff of Nottingham "Is that morris dancing over there?"
    Courtier "Yes Sire it is"
    Sheriff of Nottingham " Ah I've always been a little worried about Maurice"

    Morris Dancing.

    Brits being confident with their sexuality and not worrying about Twitter or facebook.

    Usually takes place at or very near a pub! (Americans will be shocked to discover that in Britain they have pubs with grass, even gardens)

    History more than 200 years old.

    Hankie can be used as a sun shield

    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.

    Morris dancing takes some balls to do - it's a real mans dance.

    It is named after the favourite vehicle driven by morris men, who believe a MOrris Marina is a classic.

    Riverdance is a fraud. They never dance on a river.

    Morris dancing - performed by English men for fun.

    River dancing - performed by Patricks to dodge the draft.

    How about river dancing Morris men?



    Suddenly I have this urge to return to the UK or a Sunday afternoon of Guinness, a bag of pork scratchings, a brass band, some Morris dancing and a game of skittles.

    I just love irish dancing, and scottish dancing and disco dancing and body popping dancing.

    Even a wee salsa gets me going.

    I wish i could dance.

    Morris dancing is derived from 'moorish dance' and dates from 15th century Spain. It was, allegedly, first danced in England in 1494 before the court of King Henry VII. The sticks, used by some teams, represent the short swords, used by the moors in battle. The use of the handkerchief is said to mean that the person is unarmed. Morris dancing was in widespread use untill the Civil War, where it was used in ploughing ceremonies and celebrations of life. Modern morris dancing seems to be more about finding a pub that sells real ale and having a good time. For that reason alone, it gets my vote!

    my vote went for the irish, how a girl can get her legs up so high yet not show her knickers is a mystery to me,
    i can see how, with the aid of a few pints of scrumpy, morris dancing would get you clapping along, but sober i would be verry uneasy in ther company,
    life is what happens to us while we are making other plans
