May Day Morris Dancing Fail Is Traditionally British (VIDEO)

Happy May Day, boys and girls! And grown men! Who like dancing around with sticks!

Yes, what better way to celebrate May Day than with a spot of traditional morris dancing. Just click play on the video above to see how it can go horribly, disastrously wrong, however - when one of the dancers in this troupe appears to suffer that most terrible of morris dancing setbacks: 'getting a bit of cramp in your leg'. Yes, this might be a slightly banal fail. But what's more traditionally British than that?

That said, we'd be the last to declare that morris dancing is for wimps. Just check out the BBC Comedy video below - in which Dizzee Rascal leads its renaissance in urban areas. "Thrown down the gun and pick up the hanky", indeed.
