P. T. Barnam

Come one come all, to the greatest show on earth! These were the words echoed throughout the lands in the glory days of P.T. Barnam of Barnam and Bailey Circus fame. Here is my Mother's Barnam doll.

 Uh... imbibing before a rigorous round of auditions for his new traveling circus!

Lucky for you, you are in on the auditions.

Candidate # 1, the disappearing shot glass trick:

There is a shot glass under the hat, and the bartender drank it without touching the hat. Amazing, don't ask how he did it!

Next, the dog act:

She prepares for her remarkable dance: 

Meanwhile, back at the bar, see Brenda and her staggering chicken dance:

Folks will thrill to see #4's phenomenal juggling!

Stupefying can only describe this next act!!!

But hold onto your hats, folks, here is the amazing balancing straw act!

Ho, ho, we aren't over yet! 
Thrill to the shocking 8 armed wonder!!
 Nearing the end of this vigorous round of auditions, Mr. Barnam had to take a well deserved break in the action, to get some well deserved action!

Then he did a little remarkable balancing act of his own!

However, I'm sorry to disappoint, friends of all ages, but Mr. P.T. Barnam's curtain call came when an ornery fish called him over to perform the most dubious astounding, jaw-dropping flying fish routine ever seen with the naked eye.

And this merely proves, "There's a sucker born every minute!"
