Passing Taruith/Arthsoc/interested-in-folk-stuff types may recognise the original on which the rather silly Chad Orzel based this. Enjoy :)

An aside

Busily not-posting about important stuff seems on the verge of leading to me not posting at all, so I shall see if I can manage some largely (or entirely) inconsequential bits and pieces over the next few days. Starting with this: I recently mentioned to a friend that it's possible to sing both "Amazing Grace" and "House of the Rising Sun" to the tune of "Ilkley Moor". To which his response was "What's Ilkley Moor?", which frankly floored me. If I had poll-posting facilities, I might well put up a poll asking whether you, dear reader

  1. shared his boat

  2. had shared his boat at some point later than, say, leaving primary school, but were no longer in it

  3. knew all about Ilkley Moor but find it reasonable that some other people don't

  4. can't understand how anyone can reach their twenties, growing up entirely in the UK, without knowing Ilkley Moor in some form

  5. had lost your parents (or hamster, or indeed hamper) in a remarkable, but nonetheless regrettable, folk-singing-related incident

  6. had lost your parents (or hamster, or indeed hamper) in an unremarkable, or perhaps less than entirely regrettable, folk-singing-related incident
