This is a question Why I Love/Hate Britain

This week's been all about the Daily Mail and why people love or hate their country. Tell us one thing you hate about Britain, and one thing about why you love it.

This shouldn't be an excuse for RACISTLOLS, or long lists of things you dislike. Be intelligent, be funny, and be interesting

Morris Dancing
I love the fact that being from a country that spent lots of time wondering around the globe nicking things and fighting everyone that our national dance involves waving hankies and jangling bells.

I'd very much like to see the England Rugby team morris as a response to the haka next time we play NZ. It'll shit 'em right up.

I think the response to the haka should be a round of heads, shoulders, knees and toes.
But, I do like the morris dancing idea.

or the Hokey cokey
giving them the finger on the "that's what it's all about" (instead of the tongue waggling)

I recently overcame an addiction to the Hokey Cokey
It was difficult, but I've turned myself around now, and that's what it's all about.

I tried to join the village Morris side once.
I was turned down because I'd been circumcised.
They only take complete pricks.

The last person to tell me that joke was a Welsh nationaliist
He used to dress up in a green tabard and perform Welsh national dances on the weekend. Actually, for the Vagabond-style answer to this question, Wales.

Is it really our 'national dance'? *mind boggles*

Click for the OP lolz and the replies above.

I think so, I can't think of any other contenders but I'm not an authority on such matters.

I thought the national dance
was a quick shag in the stairwell

I do believe it originates from "The Moorish Dances" - that of the Moors, or - more politically correctly these days -
The Arabs.

Indeed - I believe it might originally be a piss-take of their dancing, though I'm not certain.

I am told it can get quite violent
By someone (no, not me, i'm not quite that odd) I know that does, indeed do, such things. I'd definitely pay to see the Morris/Haka face off.

Very violent.

Drive by morris is particularly pernicious in parts of rural gloucestershire.

Needs more wooden clubs and blackface.

I once saw on the BBC's saturday afternoon sports show
a rugby match on the island of Bermuda, between an All Black over-35's team and a Barbarian over 35's team. The All Blacks came out and did their haka, giving it the chest-thumping and tongue-wagging and what have you. The Barbarians plonked down a boom box and did the Macarena.

Funny as fuck, haven't found it on YouTube despite looking for it several times.

My sister perpetrates random acts of unprovoked morris

She once asked me if I'd like to join. I pointed out that, as I am an overweight, bearded IT professional who likes Real Ale, the universe would probably implode if faced with that level of stereotyping.

And whacking sticks together, don't forget the whacking of the sticks
I've done a bit of Morris and I think it's something I might grow into. Fuck it, when I'm old I won't give a fuck anyway.
