Sell Out With Me Tonight

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is sort of like the Microsoft of the circus world. The “Greatest Show on Earth” got to be the greatest by “teaming up” with (read: acquisitions and mergers, dude!) or rolling over any competition over the last 138 years. Just look at their name – it’s like one of those long lists of law firm partners. So does that make them, like, the Man? Hmmm, we dunno. But just imagine how cool those obnoxious Mac vs. PC commercials would be if they included dancing, white Bengal tigers, magnificent Asian elephants, and, most spectacular of all, a pack of performing daschunds. We’d buy a ticket. But to tell you the truth, we like Microsoft too. Macs blow. And it feels great to be a sellout! Sell out with us (you know you want to) when the Circus hits the South Florida Fairgrounds (9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach) this Thursday through Monday. Tickets start at $15. Call 561-966-3309, or visit www.ringling.com.
