GUEST,Elfcall Mummers and Racism (138* d) RE: BS: Mummers and Rascism 14 Dec 04

Sorry DtG and Wyswyg. I was expecting a mummers reply !

Each year on Boxing Day (or St Stephens Day as my other half will have it) I go to see Coventry Mummers at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. My brother plays the doctor and cures all .... etc. When he comes to his 'curing pains within or pains without' - somebody from the audience (and it has been known to be me !) will interject with 'pains without what?' to which the rejoinder is 'without your bloody help thank you very much'. Not very funny but very nearly traditional !

Stoneleigh is a beautiful village but without a pub !! - fortunately for the mummers there is a social club   - like they need more drink by 1.00pm !!!
