The Queen's Meme #24 - The Circus Meme



Mimi of The Queen's Meme has sent this in....


Welcome to the Queen's Meme #24.

Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.

Always fun!

Step out of the box. Be creative.

Use your imagination.No one's answers are quite like yours.

It's time for the circus. We are all going!

Fun for the whole family, right? Hmmm....depends on your taste. Whether you're a fan of circus tricks, sweaty animals in a ring, fire breathers and bearded ladies or you find it all just a wee bit offensive, never let it be said that memers in blogland have no opinions on the matter. Whatever your preference, these photos leave much to the imagination and could be explained in a variety of ways. I found some amazing lithographs from the early 1900s depicting the Greatest Show on Earth and some from Cirque du Soleil. Back in the day when the circus was the circus instead of a commercial fest and a legal team from PETA standing behind each elephant.

This is your task.

I've provided ten pictures from the wonderful public domain land of Wikimedia.org.

Your job is to caption them.

Use humor, satire, serious commentary, personal recollections of your own circus experiences or just plain silliness...I'm sure you can find something to write about that will make us laugh, cry, or think.

I warn you though. This picture meme isn't as easy as it looks.

Let's get started.
