Sometimes glamorous circus performers aren't experiencing the same glamour that the audience is, especially on hot days or in bright stage lights. I recently heard one of the other performers at a gig say backstage "I'm really glad that the audience can't smell me. Because I smell awful" to which another replied something like "Yeah, there's only so much layering of deodorant you can do before you just start smelling like Spring Rain and Sweat."
Also, you may notice that this post was super-late. Well, my computer broke beyond repair, and it took me until now to get a new one up and running. But now I'm working on a computer that's harder, better, faster, stronger, so it's all good!

Sometimes when you are on the road you make certain sacrifices. Balancing your budget is a careful juggling act when you start talking about rooms, food, rental cars, and other expenses. Discount motels start looking really appealing. You might even consider getting creative...

This is almost word for word a real conversation. You'll be happy to know that even without being present for the search of our car, and it still being full of sketchy, sketchy circus performance gear, we have crossed the Canadian border multiple times.
To this day, we haven't tried it with a bag of oranges. We're too scared.

One of the benefits of working as a performer is that you get to travel the world, though you might end up spending more time traveling between the venue and where you are sleeping than you will seeing any sights. Sometimes that's the same thing, and at that point you just have to hope that where you are performing also has a bar and a console with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
Stay tuned for next week's comic, where I try my hand at the dreaded continuous plotline!

Despite having a healthy relationship with fire for about a decade now, it never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to get burned doing mundane things. They say "don't play with fire unless you want to get burned", but really they should say "don't make a bagel hastily unless you want to get burned".

Some people really love their bacon. I've seen bacon chocolate, bacon-wrapped corn dogs, even bacon-wrapped chicken on a stick.
Yup. That exists. Don't believe me? Check out the Tulsa State Fair! They have deep fried butter there too, but that's a different story.

Sometimes, it's not good enough to just be a fire eater, or a juggler, or a contortionist. Sometimes, the client is putting on a special themed event, and wants all of their entertainers to adhere to said theme. Sometimes, the client has a thing for mollusks.
This idea is almost entirely stolen from a real conversation.
