The Queen's Meme #24 ~ The Circus Meme

Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.No one's answers are quite like yours.

It's time for the circus. We are all going!
Fun for the whole family, right? Hmmm....depends on your taste. Whether you're a fan of circus tricks, sweaty animals in a ring, fire breathers and bearded ladies or you find it all just a wee bit offensive, never let it be said that memers in blogland have no opinions on the matter. Whatever your preference, these photos leave much to the imagination and could be explained in a variety of ways. I found some amazing lithographs from the early 1900s depicting the Greatest Show on Earth and some from Cirque du Soleil. Back in the day when the circus was the circus instead of a commercial fest and a legal team from PETA standing behind each elephant.
This is your task.
I've provided ten pictures from the wonderful public domain land of Wikimedia.org.
Your job is to caption them.
Use humor, satire, serious commentary, personal recollections of your own circus experiences or just plain silliness...I'm sure you can find something to write about that will make us laugh, cry, or think.
I warn you though. This picture meme isn't as easy as it looks.
Let's get started.

Look at the flying trapeze artists. What are they saying?
"I wish I'd worn a better bra."

2"Hey you! Elephant #3 back there! I need a ride.
You don't have gas pedal issues, do you?"

Some job interview! Do I have to hold this til the firetrucks get here?
" You guys have gained weight since the last lift."


What part of "no" don't you understand?

Excuse me, I'm trying to play the cymbals here.

"You're my date tonight? I was expecting a blonde."

I don't think this is OSHA approved.


Your fly is open.

I lose more saddles this way.

Hello all - I had fun doing this one too. But I'll admit it was challenging!

Travis said...

I still say clowns are creepy.

Al it reminded me of is how bad it is to fly through hoops for someone's amusement.

#1 cracked me up!

I'm glad I didn't attempt this one. I lost my sense of humor. Haven't seen it anywhere have you?
