Taste funny? I thought they only got rid of the animals. Did they ban clowns too?
LOL Nothing says fun like letting 6 Bengal tigers loose to fend for themselves!
Oh well, the camels and baboons could fend
if the tigers didn’t eat them.
For a moment I was confused and thought you were talking about business in Detroit, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Chicongo, Los Angeles.....
And then I realized you are referencing the circus animals in the story.
