eXtreme circus ...

... now, before you go all politically correct on me ... let me explain ... this wasn't my idea ... seriously ... it wasn't ...

I think it was Honey's idea .... yea, she was watching the Magpie and me enjoying our little slices of cheese (a rare treat around here) and she decided she needed to do something eXtra special in order to liberate some of that cheese ....

 Ladies and Gentlemen .... WELCOME TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!!! .... (yeah, imagine circus music, spotlights, terrifying clowns and the smell of popcorn and candy floss) ... 

In the centre ring ...... Miss Honey and the "ball of doom" ....

you want me to do what??? for a piece of cheese ....
Honey and her assistant Magpie must perfectly centre the ball ....


Magpie gingerly helps Honey into position ... will she slip???  will she fall???? will she fail???  .... the audience stills ...


Ooooops!   this doesn't look right
 the audience simultaneously gasps!!!
The hushed audience is so still you can hear a popcorn kernel drop ... and get stepped on ... while other bits of popcorn are being consumed .... and more get dropped ... and an elephant steps on a kernal ... while a creepy clown sweeps more of stuff out of the ring

.....

.....


.....


.....






The crowd ROARS!!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls .... She has done it!!!   give us a round of applause for the amazing Miss Honey and the "Balllll of Dooooom"

Get me outta here!!!  and get my cheese ... stat!!!

No puppies or humans were hurt during this eXtreme circus ... and they were all fed mounds of cheese and in Honeys case, a little biscuit with her cheese ...

That is too cute :) I'm quite impressed that Honey pulled the trick off. She looks completely on edge there on that ball, especially with all those claws out but she did good :)

I luv it!

Miriam said...

Hi there,
if your cheese is good I'm sure Honey will soon be able to stand on the ball without any help. Well maybe you'll choose a slightly bigger ball. She's got talen! ;-)
