Put your left leg in...

Here's something from YouTube that I found quite amusing. It's an Irish tag rugby team from Galway (known as the "Hopeless Losers") doing a unique version of the Haka ...



To all those who are offended by this clip, I most humbly apologise. I realise how sensitive you must be to any disrespect shown to such an iconic cultural symbol. The last thing I want to do is upset you in the same way that those naughty women from Canterbury Rugby Club did when they performed a haka topless for their 2007 calendar. How dare they do something genuinely amusing while attempting to raise money for breast cancer charity.

Likewise I would rather not incur the wrath of those who objected to the Australian TV advert that depicted the All Blacks performing the haka whilst sporting some rather fetching handbags. Heaven forbid that I should be accused of being insensitive to Maori culture or disrespectful of All Black history.

Next thing you know, someone will be accusing me of not having a sense of humour...

That is seriously the best post ever...I am tempted to completely copy it and put it on my blog. Of course I would give all rights and acknowledgements to you!
