How many of you had the joy of going to the circus as a kid?



The greatest show on earth.

I have been, but it's been quite some time. I don't even remember anything about it other than having been there. I think the kids would get a kick out of it.

I went to the circus and I saw an elephant poop and it made me throw up. I don't know if I'd call that joy, but it's what I remember the most.

Other than that, I know that I went a few times, and had fun. These are very vague memories. The clearest one, again, is the elephant pooping. Actually, he peed first, and I thought it was weird, because it was more like dumping a bucket. Then the same elephant pooped and it splattered and that was enough to make me throw up. I threw up on the floor and it was all over the floor and we had to move.

Grossed out yet? Good Now you know how I felt when I went to the circus

Grossed out? Yes. But not to the point of being sick.

Must be that I've had to clean up so much poop in my life (having 3 kids, cats, dogs, and in the past --> fish, hamsters, chinchillas, rabbits... ) that I'm just used to it now.

Well, reading about it when you are an adult is certainly different than seeing it when you are eight years old. Last night I watched "Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe" on Netflix and saw 2000 gallons of pig crap rush out of a 6" pipe and I was fine. To say nothing of hanging out at my friend's farm and watching hundreds of black Skittles fall out of a goat's butt. Or sitting in the bed of a pickup truck with the goats while the same thing happens. Or repairing a broken sewer pipe in my crawlspace.

I'm shakin steak and this has been Poop Talk, on Retro-Daze.

Is that all anyone's going to talk about in this thread? Feces?

I've only been to the circus once, and I remember seeing the guy being shot out of the cannon and hearing that loud boom. That's about all I remember from my experience.

I didn't go to the circus until I was an adult. I used to beg my parents as a kid to take me. But they never did.
