I really, really hate circuses that have animals; come on, what is entertaining about seeing lions jump through a hoop of fire?? I try telling all my friends not to bring their kids when the Super Circus comes to town every December, but they don't understand and go anyways.

Super cute, I'd still be wary of a lion that's got it's paws around me like that though.
