#BadNamesForACircus via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


Ahhhh, the circus. 3 rings of pure, family friendly entertainment. The ringmaster directing our attention to the trapeze artists flying high over head. The lion tamer having the lion jump thru a hoop before sticking his head in it’s mouth. All the clowns spilling out of a tiny car only meant for one person to delight the crowd with their silly antics. The human canon ball waving to the crowd before he slides into the extra large canon, then being blasted to the other side of the tent. The blindfolded knife thrower and his lovely assistant standing against a wall as he throws knives barely missing her. The elephants marching in a row. The daredevil. The bearded lady. Ummm….Giraffes? Maybe some alligators? Ok, Ok, Ok fine, I admit it! I’ve never once been to a circus. I just have no real desire to go and sit in a tent put up by a drunken carny worker and watch sad, past their prime entertainers, creepy clowns, and abused animals parade in front of me. Does NOT sound like my idea of a good time. And I’m not the only one who thinks so. Famous circuses like Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey have closed their doors after over 100 years of touring. Animal abuse reports have also done quiet a number on the reputation of many circuses. If the big name circuses can’t even keep their tents up what chance do the little mom and pop circuses have? The heyday of the small traveling circus going from town to town is LONG gone. Left in it’s place is avant-garde, barely even circuses like Cirque du Soleil which is nothing more than an acrobat show filled with half naked people twirling from streamers while Yoko Ono songs play. But I digress, back to the regular circus. It’s fallen on hard times. It’s really on it’s last leg. That being said, what could be even worse than a sad cut rate circus strolling into town? How about it’s name! That’s why this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” was #BadNamesForACircus. So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next Exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
