My friend Michael has turned carnival barker and sends in this:
This circus remains old fashioned with acrobats, clowns, trained animals
and other feats of skills. The prices for admission are modern and food
& drink are at the usually Staple Center markup, but the entertainment
is unique and fun.
Take a break from your usual weekend plans and go see elephants march.
Now growing up in Bradenton, Florida – the ghetto just north of Sarasota where Ringling Brothers is based out of (hell, my mom lives on Ringling Blvd) I’ve seen this circus about a brazilian times. Then I moved to away to college and when the circus came to town there a bunch of of the peta losers decided the circus needed protesting and begged us to join them. Half because we thought they were full of shit, and half because we just liked to star trouble a few friends and I went along but brought our own signs. I think mine said “The Circus is Stinky!” and had a crude drawing of poop complete with buzzing flies and stink lines. My friend Jeff had a sign that read “The Circus Makes Baby Jesus Cry” and Anatol had one saying “Protests are fun!” We amused ourselves pretty good with that one, and shockingly we weren’t invited back the next time when those hippies decided they needed to protest the Weinermobile came to town. So naturally we counter protested with signs like “I heart Weiners!”
