The circus is in town

By Kerces - 14 September 2005 7

…and I’m disappointed.

All my reading of books and watching of movies has led me to believe that circuses always arrive in bucketing rain and still manage to get their tent up within hours.

But Silver’s Circus, that’s now set up next to Belconnen Mall, arrived on Monday (well there may have been a little bit of rain), started setting their tent up yesterday and it was mostly set up-looking by this afternoon (there were no sides on it, but maybe they just don’t have sides on their tent).

Anyway, for anyone interested, the ad in the paper says it’s here from 15-SEP-05 until 16-OCT-05 with shows on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and matinees on weekends and in the school holidays. Adult ticket prices are $20, $25 or $35 depending on where you sit.

And they have horses, because I saw them busy eating the grass around the tent.

What’s Your opinion?

The best way to handle a guinea pig is with a knife and fork, in Peru.

Guinea pigs are like teddy bears with hypodermic needles hidden in them. Handle with care or they’ll puncture your finger five times in a second.

That is truly weird….

I’m told horses are for some inexplicable reason terrified of recumbent bikes — apparently this is fairly well known among the recumbent cycling community in Canberra. They don’t seem to have a problem with uprights though. Stupid horses.

Horses are just fat arsed dogs that like to run around in circles….

BTW – I so wanna be a carny

I hate horses. They scare the willies out of me.

frankly I’m more comfortable picking up a brown snake, which I’ve done before, than patting a horse.

Of course, this may have something to do with the fact that when I was a little tacker in Townsville I copped two back hooves fair in the chest and made like Peter pan for a while in that I could fly….

Until I landed, which also hurt.

Nope, bring back safe animals like Guinea Pigs and fluffy rabbits jumping through rings of fire…

Horses are big and scarey….
