Hey, Rube!

Do you want to talk about your beautiful country, family, or dog? Would you like to say where you went on holiday or how you arranged the garden? Are you willing to tell us you girlfriend left you for a(nother) loser? Do you have ANY non knife-related topic you want to discuss? This is the place!

Hey, Rube!

A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. The Social Workers raise doubts about their suitability.

The couple produces photos of their 50-foot motor home, which is clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.

The Social Workers then raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care. "We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills."

Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment.

"Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare, and diet. There are many children of all races and creeds for the child to interact with."

The social workers are finally satisfied and ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter, as long as the kid fits in the cannon!"

Good one Dave. One of my father's favorite W.C. Fields quotes was "Anyone who hates kids and dogs can't be all bad."

Funny and that is so true :lol: Several years back I use to work as a stage-crew hand for a local community circus, and "The Show Must Go On" is the mindset of the day. Any kid who wasn't afraid was a star! Now and then, people who belonged to Circus Solei and Circus Vargas would visit looking for new potential. Some of these young kids honed their skills and actually found jobs with large well know Circuses around the world.
