[minstrels] go well with morris dancers

I don't quite know what Tom is getting at here but if it's what I think it is, then this youtube is offered in support [click on the pic]:

Punch, old chap, you could only sigh if you knew what I was getting at but as I don't know what I'm getting at myself, I'm pleased as punch that you seem to know. :)

James, thank you for the comment, I suppose I thought I understood what you were getting at, my mistake. When I was a child all the public schools, here in the south, had minstrel shows, a way to entertain and rasie money for school projects. Then the folks with the real black faces got all pissie and we had to quit. The 'sigh' was for days long gone. I would suggest if those dudes show up in Atlanta with that 'cork' shit on their faces they will be suprised what crawls out of the wood work, and puts them on the next plane home. 'Just can't do it no more' 'round here that is.
Sorry for the really bad grammer, just can't help it. (lol)
