Embedded text or transcript"Cricket is a better game than tennis", say some advocates, "Because you get more knocked about at it"
(At tennis, of course, you can always dodge behind the net)
Applying the same argument to art - knockabouts are a better show than Hamlet.
Hamlet's scraps with Laertes being comparitively tame affairs.
And apache dancing -
Beats ballroom trotting all to fits
