So what will the folks at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ask P.T. Barnum at the July 5 seance? We don’t know, so we’ve prepared a few questions for the world’s greatest showman:

• Is Ringling Brothers still the “Greatest Show on Earth”? Follow up: Come on, have you seen “Avatar: 3D”?

• Are carnies as filthy today as they were back in your day?

• If not, what can we do to encourage more filthiness?

• Is it true what they say about midgets?

• Is this seance thing a hoax, scheme, flam, scam, or trick?

Reasonable discourse

Midget Carny from New York, NY says:
PT Barnum is set to come back from the dead and this is the best you could come up with? Unfunny. The Carny and Midget Anti-defamation Society has been notified. The Brooklyn Paper is the one that needs a bath. Pee-yew!

This is the biggest load of crap ever. My question to him would be "Why were you an abusive, capitalist jerk who found it fun to make money off of abusing & exploiting people & animals". That would be IF psychics were real. This psychic sure was real...real FAT!
