Life's too Serious


One day, Alex calls the circus. A lady answers the phone.

“Hello?” she says.

“Hi, I hear you’re hiring for the circus.”

“You’ve heard correctly, sir. What makes you think you can join the circus?”

“Well, I have several talents. For example, I can shoot a three-pointer in basketball five times in a row.”

“Okay... That’s quite impressive, sir, but it’s not really not what we’re looking for.”

“Well, I can hula hoop for 30 seconds straight!”

“Sir, I really don’t think you understand what the concept of a cir-.”

“No, please, I... I... I can jump on one leg while saying the alphabet backwards!”

“Goodbye, sir.”

She hangs up the phone. Alex sits there for a few moments before muttering “Damn. I forgot to tell her I’m a horse.”
