    The title sounds like something that would have come out on Cash Money records in the late ’90s.  I had no idea P.T. stood for Pimp Tyme…

    I’m bored with the valleys and bored with the peaks / So I bought a ticket to the freaks / I saw a chicken with two heads / Saw something else that was headless / Then p.t. said see the egress/ ’cause you move when the salesman speaks/ I superabound / But I still got nothing to do

    Barnum was also not above stealing money-making ideas from his competitors.  Whenever he spotted a money-making act by another carnival, he promptly tracked down an identical act to one-up the competition.  That’s why he hired Jo Jo, the Dog-Faced Boy to upstage Krao, the Monkey Girl.
