Found while jobhunting in the Reader this week, under Theater/Performing Arts:

LION TAMER WANTED for Defiant Fabulon, August 8-10, Viaduct. Experience preferred, but not essential. Must have health insurance. Also needed, one lion. Preferably trained....

OK, several things about this ad amuse me. But the Viaduct Theatre is just a couple blocks from my apartment, and the idea of a "preferably trained" lion being so nearby makes me a little jumpy. Then again, perhaps this is the career break I've been looking for. I've already got the hat.

At least they didn't ask for a lioness. Ahem.

I think people know better than to try to tame a lioness.

I don't know I feel about three doors down from me having a cut rate lion and lion tamer. I mean, I know just how thin and frail their back doors are. I really don't want my apartment building (or *shutter* my dogs) in footage of Fox's
"When Animals Attack".

Perhaps that ad should have also said "And one cage, sturdy."

And the whip? You've got the whip right? Hmm...
