Here is an odd one. Just watched on telly for the umpteenth time the National Lampoon Griswolds European Vacation with Chevy Chase etc. Always reminds my family of our own early continental holidays in a Citroen Dyane falling prey to every rip off with blissful optimism. (I disgress). The Bavarian/Austrian dance scene is the point. Was this not Morris dancing in lederhosen? The steps, the slapping with or without sticks, the formation clog, the mysogeny (no ladies in a proper side), the beer culture. Could it be that Morris is Moritz, Germanic as pils, and nothing whatever to do with obscure Moorish origins as usually suggested? Not to knock Morris. Warm beer and cricket is keeps many of us going.
