OMG Loyal did you hear about Ringling Brothers being closed down? ! They're like a circus titan! When did this happen??!
Ah yes… the fall of a giant in the travelling entertainment circle. Their brand just simply could not agree with the modern world. Not to mention, all the hits they’ve taken from people getting on their case on the treatment of their animal performers.
I know a friend of mine who’s been to one, telling me that compared to the few circus performances they’ve managed to attend, it seemed like their show was meant for very, very small children. Children who have not seen these animals, would laugh at the most mediocre of clown performances, and could be entertained by most anything. They think there was one ‘daredevil’ stunt that was actually impressive, but otherwise there was nothing too extravagant.
It’s a shame to hear, but I suppose all good things must come to an end at some point.
I can only hope that my circus will last just as long, if not longer.
