Circus Baby

A husband and wife who worked for the circus went to an adoption agency to adopt a child.  The social workers there raised doubts about their suitability.

The couple then produced photos of their 50-foot motor home, which was clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.

The social workers then raised concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple’s care.

"We’ve arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills."

Then the social workers expressed concern about a child being raised in a circus environment.

"Our nanny will be a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare, and diet."

Circus Cannon

The social workers were finally satisfied.  They asked, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter...as long as the kid fits into the cannon."
