Top Ten Common Mistakes Made by Amateur Circus Performers
(submitted by English Pete)
Remember to juggle the torches and ride the elephants. Not the opposite.
Do not use "Two-Ton Tess" in your new knife-throwing act.
It's not a good idea to tease the elephants by blowing pepper up their trunks.
Clowns should do somersaults in front of the elephants and horses, not behind them.
Use only wooden furniture when taming lions. The tacky plastic stuff really cheeses them off.
Well, the joy buzzer during trapeze practice wasn't the best idea...
Bo-Bo the circus Gorilla, Redbull-laced bananas, and the attempt to juggle loaded hand guns seemed like a show stopper!
Do not accept a lift home from the clowns; It takes forever to get to your place!
(Squeezette, Major Tom)
