Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
"I would like to know what Simon Care thinks about "The Fluffies", the Carnival Morris of girls, quite common in the Northwest. They are clearly evolved from Northwest Morris."

IIRC, my partner, who used to dance with a Northwest side, was once dancing at an event where there was also a Carnival morris side of young girls. When the Northwest side struck up, one of the Carnival girls was heard to pipe up (cue broad Scouse accent): "Eh, they know all our dances!"
