image for Government finally set to release Conga Etiquette Guidelines

Following a number of high profile incidents, the UK Government is to issue a handbook detailing the etiquette and guidelines of the wedding reception favourite dance, the Conga.

The dance, invented by William Conga, Duke of Arbroath in 1912, has seen a recent resurgence in popularity leading to a number of conga related injuries and scuffles as the basic guidelines of the dance are not widely known.

Chris Huhne, the recently appointed UK Minister for Dance and Mime, announced today that his department would be issuing a UK-wide handbook covering all required information for those participating in, and especially leading a Conga chain.

Key information is expected to include the clear stipulation that the leader of a conga should try to cross the chain itself to prevent the dangerous "Conga Cross".

Furthermore, very specific information as to which buildings should not be entered by a Conga will be included following a chain in Sunderland entering a working coal mine and leaving 17 people seriously injured at the bottom of a mine-shaft.
