So Pia and I were watching TV and an ad for "Water for Elephants" came on. I tried to read that book and I pretty much hated it. Pia asked why and I told here that "I hate the circus genre". Well, that led to a lot of questions as to what exactly was included in the "circus genre".
Here's my list:
Toby Tyler (Susna, you will be the only other reader who remembers this one)
Big Top Pee-Wee
a Charlie Chaplin movie called "The Circus"
anything with midgets or clowns
Cecil B. De Mille's "The Greatest Show on Earth"
I have kind of run dry so am open to more for my list so I can lay this debate to rest.
