What happens in Happisburgh, stays in Happisburgh.

Okay, I'm genuinely clueless -- what's the problem here? The only thing I think of when someone says "shag" is 1970s carpeting. Or maybe someone catching a baseball.

Given the look of that gal in the photo, maybe HAGS would be more appropriate.

Can see the carpet industry objecting to the use of this name. But they agree it is better than 'The Linoleums'.

I don’t know what it supposedly suggests, but here in the Carolinas, the shag is the state dance. It is danced to East Coast “beach music” of the 1950s and 1960s.
