One of the greatest challenges of my career has been the assembling of a quasi-politically correct freak show that stays true to its vision without offending any parasitic twins, bearded ladies, or ossified gentlemen.

As a clockwork girl myself, I hope that we are accurately represented. ;)

If she makes a perfume with this, I can die happy.

here's poltically incorrect for you
I went to the Circus World Museum in Wisconsin last year and they have this little tent set up dedicated to the freak show. They had life sized models of famous people who used to do the side shows from the past, like JoJo the Dog faced boy and that one really famous tattooed lady whose name escapes me. Well this very.... shall we say, robust, woman walks up to me and takes a look at my tattoos and goes "woo-wee a real life freakshow! Can we get our picture with you and -whatevert the Tattooed Lady was-?!" so of course, being a complete bitch trying to enjoy my private vacation I said "only if my family can get a picture of us next to you and the model of the world's fattest woman".

That did NOT go over well at all.

Re: here's poltically incorrect for you
heh, I'm usually not so abrasive in public. She just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm actually quite in awe of the Tattooed Lady past, they were brave women. I simply don't plan to find myself in anyone's scrapbook vacation photos. And being called a "real life freakshow" will ruin anyone's mood.

Re: here's poltically incorrect for you
It was ok, a little pricey maybe. 15 bucks a person and you have to pay extra to ride and feed the animals. I'm from Chicago, so I'm used to paying 15 dollars for really big museums. I'm probably really spoiled in that regard. We ended up leaving without seeing all the shows because they are spread out over the day and we didn't know that before we went. We didn't want to wander around waiting 3 hours to see The Wonder Dog.

The circus wagons were cool, though. If you want to go someplace out of this world, visit House on the Rock. THAT'S worth the money. I had to escape for a break it was so intense. It's in Spring Green.

I imagine "Circassian Beauty" would be the hardest to get away with.

Apropos of nothing much, but I have a ring with a nice example of your username.

And I call the same act the International Congress on Medieval Studies. You are to be commended.

The very fact that it's a freak show makes it politically incorrect. And I'm already horribly offended, so you might as well release the whole shebang right this very second ;).
