Sword Play

All right, okay. Real Highland warriors perform real Highland dances. Ye ask, ye get.

But tell me this -- kin ye top this lass in the sword dance?

We know the French supported the Scottish Jacobites as they fought to restore the English throne to the House of Stewart. Perhaps that was the inspiration for this curious mashup of sword dance and can-can. Sorry, lasses, you will not see any high kicking.

Ye probably won't see me doing this at the Highland Ball, but perchance, if somebody were to put down a couple of broomsticks, who knows what might happen?

Yes, that might happen... again. Not if I can help it.
