The circus is coming


The circus, specifically Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Super Circus Heroes, is coming to Jonesboro this weekend.

I will not attend.

The last time I went to a circus was the Shrine Circus in Indianapolis back in the 1970s. I was bored stupid.

Also, I think clowns are creepy and will go far out of my way to avoid seeing one. I felt that way long before serial killer John Wayne Gayce’s penchant for painting clowns – including this self-portrait – became known.

Given the choice of a root canal or a circus, I’ll take the root canal every time.
