Explaining BQ'ing to non runners (Read 1186 times)


Consistently Slow

    I am in a  play  opening on Broadway and I have one line.

     

    I have been in the minors for 10 years. I get called up to the Majors in September.

    Run until the trail runs out.

      I get to try out for the circus every weekend.  Most weekends, I try out as the sad clown.  One weekend, I tried out as the trapeze artist. 

       

       

      (I was gonna say lion tamer, but I don't want to tick off the animal rights folks.  Plus, when it comes to the animal acts in the circus, I happen to BE one of those animal rights folks.)

        I was not able to execute the quintuple flip.  Waiting to see if the triple flip will get me in, at least as a substitute act.

              I always explain my cryptic references and bad jokes when asked.

               

              I call upon you now: say what?

                        Course you'll need an additional springboard.

                        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                            And the BAA judges your clown-worthiness based not on how old you are when you audition, but on how old you'll be at some later date when the circus is actually in town.
