BATTLE CARNIES

Carnies, or carnival workers, are the stuff of legends. Like American gypsies, they have their own culture, which outsiders seldom penetrate.

Recently I came across a news article from 1957 that mentioned a riot at a fair in Palo Alto. I found it quite entertaining. Here is a direct quote from it:

“Hey, Rube,” the traditional battle cry of carnival people, rang out and show workers rushed forward with tent stakes, wrenches, and anything else they could grab.

SLEEP TALKIN’ MAN

So on the radio this morning I heard about this blog where the wife of a sleep talkin’ man records what he says and then posts it. These are totally random yet somehow make sense. And you can buy quotes on T-shirts! I think I’ll get “It’s cake o’clock! All day long” for my friend A, who enjoys a good slice of cake.

Sleep Talkin’ Man.
