Michael says: "My friend Scott and I took our two daughters to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Kansas City last night. We thought the Clown and Horse rainbow colored snow cone brains on sale would be great Boing Boing material."
The Clown, The Horse
Aw, man…they didn’t have that when I used to go to the circus with my parents. I usually ended up with one of the revolving flashlights. And some cotton candy.
You forgot to mention the price of these things.
I went to the same circus (kids and parents loved it – much to my surprise) in Phoenix. They include these souvenir cups so they can really jack up the price and don’t sell the treats any other way. I think this was $18 or so.
Cotton candy that came with a cheap fabric hat was $12 if I remember correctly, could have been more. The prices were so outrageous that my wife and I couldn’t stop laughing about it.
I bought one of these for my 5 year old son last year at the RBB&B circus, and he absolutely loves it. He eats cheerios out of it in the morning and makes the most adorable moaning zombie sounds, “Braaaainnns… braiiins.”
Mmmm, clown brains…
Talk about brain freeze.
