New to Me: Flea Circuses





(Photo by Roy Maloy)

Okay, so I've known about flea circuses for quite some time now. But until I read this fabulous post on Dark Roasted Blend, I had no idea how cool they really are.

Check it out. You'll be scratching yourself all night--but I promise it's worth it!

And now presenting the amazing... Bitsy! Drumroll please!...........

Apparently fleas are easier to train than dogs. Too bad you can't pet them.

I would love to see one. One of the queens of England (can't remember who) hated fleas so much that she built a tiny gillotine to chop off their heads.

FYI All: The comment (now deleted) from Death is Puberty was an April Fools hoax. One that wasn't all that funny. I'm very sorry if it disturbed anyone. Mags, Kitty, and the rest, you're all very thoughtful.

I am really, really sorry. Please forgive me. i feel really guilty (which I should) Yes, I'm sorry. Please, kirsten, and the rest of you, please forgive me. remember, i had no intention of doing this. I really never meant to do this. Please let me get this off my chest and I swear i will never do anything like it again. I really am sorry. I know that it was april fools day, but i shouldn't have done that. All of you are just fantastic and wonderful and you don't deserve to have some crazy lunatic go ahead and get carried away and do that. You are all pretty caring, which is amazing and sweet. You all truly deserve to be true irregulars. Unlike me, who should be somewhere along the lines of 'chained up in a metal institution.' So, again, I am sorry if I offended you. If I bothered you with my dumb self, you are free to wack me with an umbrella or whatever it is you irregulars do to teach lunatics lessons. And I guess there's just a time when you act like an idiot. That has been a summary of every day of my life, especially now. Guess that's just another day of my being a (insert cuss words). I am sorry. I give you my word, swear, the whole thing, that I will never do this again. That I will ban myself from this place for some time until I'm not insane (that may take a while). And will hopefully not wander to other commenting blogs. So, sorry. Forgive me.
-the one you wish to stab with a very sharp pen, 'death is puberty for oldys'
ps: I can't really think of a better apology, considering I have the IQ of a cactus. I wish I was a cactus, that way I wouldn't have fingers and therefore have not made this whole mess in the first place.

Death is Puberty: Relax. I don't want to stab you with a pen or anything else! Your (very long) apology is accepted.
