Morris Minors were often described as
"bull nosed" so they
already have some of the necessary
the task of the Minotaur. Tunnels would
be similar to those
in which the Minis raced around, during
the film "The Italian Job".
Candidates who enter the tunnels
be dressed in a
heavily padded rugby ball shaped suit, so
that when struck
the Morris Minotaur they would bounce
more disorientated but remain physically
game ends when the challenger either
gives up, staggers
out of the labyrinth, or is successfully
pinned to the side of
one of the tunnels - I get to drive the car.
For anyone else that has never heard of a Moris Minor.

||Perhaps It would be an idea to further enhance the Minotaurosity of the car by adding some foam padding around the chassis, made to look like the flanks of aforesaid mythological beast. This would also count towards the non-injurement of participants.
||I was so hopping this would incorporate Morris dancing.
||"Seventh Day Advent Hoppists. They believed that every Sunday should be spent hopping. They would hop to church, hop through the service, then hop back home again.
||You see, they took the Bible literally. Adam and Eve, the snake and the apple--took it word for word. Unfortunately their version had a misprint.
||It was all based on 1 Corinthians 13, where it says, "Faith, Hop, and Charity, and the greatest of these is Hop." So that's what they did, every seventh day.
||I tell you, Sunday lunchtimes were a nightmare. Hopping around the table serving soup...we all had to wear sou'esters and asbestos underpants. "
||I didn't really get the point until the last six words. Now I understand.
