Why do Morris dancers wear bells on their trouser legs?

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

The jelly runs because it doesn't want to be late for the party. The door stays ajar because it is incognito.

The European Union!  Back in the 12th Century, Brussels declared that 'rol'ing and 'fol'ing were compulsory, so no 'hey-nonny-no' became a no-go. Lute players failing to conform were put into stocks outside Abbey Road Studios and pelted with rotten tomatoes for the whole too-dum-dilly-day.

A redneck.



After a lot of pondering and contemplation I have come up with the definitive question, which is: Why?
The knee jerk response would of course be: Because!
But I would like a more profound answer.
