Performing Circus Animals

A few months ago I went to the circus which was in town. This was supposed to be a RoyalMat Salleh’ circus (but apparently owned by some Malaysian guy) and had an international cast of performers, from Iberian trapeze artists, Indian mahouts, Chinese acrobats, Eastern European cabaret girls etc.

And the many animals on show. The one I watched they didn’t bring out the lions and tigers (we saw the big cats snoring in their cages outside the big top). But other that that they still had a large menagerie of performing animals on show, monkeys, ponies, one very small elephant, poodles and a bored looking house-cat.

In fact, ALL the animals had this bored look on their faces, maybe it the monotony of performing the same thing everyday, or the fact that the owners don’t subscribe to Animal Planet on Astro for the animals.

I could imagine the animals talking with another during the performances, to alleviate the boredom and pass the time:

Monkey #1 (while performing on the ponies): Oh, look Tinkerbell, the big top is hardly even a quarter full tonight. The economy must be going to the dogs…

Monkey #2: Yeah, I know. At these ticket prices, who wants to come to the circus anymore?

Monkey #1: Say, does this tutu make my ass look fat?

Monkey #2
: Look, your ass looks fat in anything.

Monkey #1: Shut up, you son of a monkey…


Poodle #1 (while walking on hind legs): Another night, another performance… What’s the point of it all..?

Poodle #2: Its showbiz pal, we just have to do what we have to do.

Poodle #1: Oh look, we’re supposed to jump through the hoops now.

Poodle #2: Don’t you just hate it when we do all the tricks and our moronic trainer gets all the applause?

Poodle #1: Yeah I know. Let’s pull a prank on him tonight…

Poodle #2: Are you thinking what I’m thinking, comrade?

Poodle #1: I’m thinking doggie-doo on his favourite tuxedo when he’s flirting with that skinny showgirl…

*Sigh*... I hate Mondays...

  • Awww Simon, you just killed my desire to do charity. My kids are bugging me to buy the circus tickets (they are now around St. Anne's church BM) because 50% proceeds will go towards my church (only for that one night, ok? hahaha). Now how? If I sit there, I can hear animals talking.

    Monkey #1 : Hey, did you know that NOTY winner blogged about us?

    Monkey #2 : No shit! What did he write?

    Monkey #1 : (let Simon fill in the blanks)
