The Morris: Cheap Knob Jokes

The climax of the torchlit parade yesterday at Broadstairs Folk Week went as it should: the Morris Group who were supposed to dance at the end vanished, either lost or to the pub, so Dead Horse Morris volunteered with an accordian player from another group. They did the Brimfield Stick Dance introduced with the warning "If you think you see anything rude, it's just a fallacy".

In case you miss the joke: This is a pun, or play on words, as for about half the dance the sticks are held protruding from the groin while being beaten by other dancers, and "fallacy" sounds like "phallus-y".
