    A couple took their young son for his first visit to the circus, and by chance their seats were next to the elephant pen. While his father was gone buying popcorn, the boy piped up, "Mom, what's that long thing on the elephant?"
    "That's the elephant's trunk, dear," she replied. "No, not that at the other end."
    "Oh, that's the elephant's tail."
    "No, Mom. Down underneath."
    His mother blushed and said, "Oh, that's nothing."
    Pretty soon the father returned, and the mother went off to get a soda.
    While she was gone the boy repeated his questions.
    "That's the elephant's trunk, son," he replied.
    "Dad, I know what an elephant's trunk is. The thing at the other end, down underneath the elephant's tail."
    The father took a good look, "Oh. That's the elephant's penis." "Dad, how come when I asked Mom, she said it was nothing?"
    The man took a deep breath and more...

    P. T. Barnum

    Hot 4 years ago

    The following is an old anecdote, but a good one. Sometime in the early 1900's,
    P. T. Barnum, the owner of the Barnum & Bailey circus and originator of the
    phrase "There's a sucker born every minute" offered $10,000 in cash to any person
    who could thoroughly dupe, or sucker, him.
    Barnum was always looking for interesting new acts or novel creatures to
    exhibit, and one day he received a letter from a fellow in Maine who claimed
    to possess a cherry-colored cat and asked if Barnum were interested in such
    a thing for his circus. Barnum contacted the man and said yes, if the cat were
    truly cherry-colored, he'd gladly put it on display. Well, a few days later
    a crate marked "live animal" arrived for him. When Barnum opened it, he found
    a somewhat frightened but otherwise perfectly ordinary-looking black housecat
    inside, along with a note which read:
    Maine cherries are black.
    There's a sucker born every more...

    ...'Well, it wasn't that tragic. Soon after that, I started seeing another man who performed in the circus. He was really a great guy, but he lived pretty dangerously because he performed his high-wire act without a net.
    Well, a few weeks after we got married, he was performing a show and suddenly a gust of wind came by and knocked him off his wire and he was killed.'
    'Your second husband was killed too?!!? That's horrible!'
    'Yes, it was terrible, but at the funeral I fell in love with the minister and we got married soon after that. Unfortunately, one Sunday while he was walking to church, he was hit by a car and killed.'
    'Three??? Three husbands of yours were killed? How could you live through all that?'
    'It was pretty tough, but then I met my present husband. And he's a wonderful man. I think we'll live a long happy life together.'
    'And what does your present husband do for a living?'
    'He's a mortician.'
    'A mortician? I don't understand something more...

    Duck Show

    Hot 3 years ago

    Walking into a bar the circus owner noticed everyone gathered around a table to watch a show. Getting closer he saw a pot was turned upside down and a duck was tap dancing on it. Thinking what a great circus act this could be, he offered to buy the duck from its owner. After some bartering back and forth, the owner of the duck said he would accept $5000 for the duck and would even throw the pot into the deal.
    A few days later, the circus owner returned to the bar, furious with the duck's previous owner. "You ripped me off! Right in front of the whole audience I put the duck on the pot and he didn't dance at all, not one single step."
    "That never happened to me. Did you remember to light the candle under the pot?" asked the former owner.
