Taking the ‘are you British’ test…

Damian Lanigan over at the Telegraph is looking for contributions to his alternative British test. So far most of it is pretty Anglo Centric, so I reckon he could do with a few more from a Northern Irish British angle… To give you flavour, here’s Damian’s Number One:

1 – On encountering a Morris dancer one should:

a) clap a little, smile wanly, wish one were elsewhere
b) buy him a pint of Hook Norton and commiserate about the declining build-quality of knee-bells
c) decapitate him

Not sure which of those would disqualify you as being British…
