Circus Ringmaster Stevie Peevie and his troupe.

My virtual roomie fern hill discovered this brilliant website of Canadian political satire.

From one of UrNews items:

Con­ser­v­a­tive spokesman Dun­ning Kruger announced today that he is launch­ing Cirque du Steve’s Freaks and Geeks, a new circus-style show that will com­bine fund-raising for con­ser­v­a­tive causes with get­ting the mes­sage to the grass­roots in key ridings. [...]

“All right-thinking Cana­di­ans love a cir­cus – just look at the polls,” said Kruger. “But they’re sick of Pepsi per­former types from Que­bec with their New Agey ‘foreign-cultures-are-more-spiritual-than-yours’ crap and their fairy cos­tumes. What they want is to get back to the good old days of clap­ping seals, scary strong­men, hall of mir­rors, bearded women, bad suits and cre­ation­ists. Cir­cus for the base is base circus, baby!”

Fea­tured in the show are: Duff­ster, the Human Can­non­ball; Iggy, the Danc­ing Bear; tight-rope walker Big Tony C.; Vic Toews, the Human Pret­zel; John Baird, the Human Han­key; Bev Oda as Humper the Clown; the Amaz­ing Taz­ing Fan­tino; Peter Mack, trained to jump through burn­ing hoops; bearded lady Jason Ken­ney; and more.

And let's not forget the little people: Dimitri Soudas, elephant-poop-scooper extraordinaire! Flaming Regurgitator 'Fatwa' Flanagan!

As US circus founder P.T. Barnum (allegedly) said: "There's a sucker born every minute."
