Here's a new idea I came up with that could make you some extra $ and would be fun too!
A Giant Flea!
Adding a different element to your show can't hurt. :)

These look very cool.
I am currently broke, but I personally very much want either:
1) a pygmy mermaid
2) a full sized mermaid
3) a shrunken head

I would also very much like the original How to Grindshow book, but I seem to have missed out! (I had thought of buying it by itself a while ago, but thought, "Nah, some day I'll have the money for a zibit and I'll buy it then." Ooops!)

I hadn't thought of it for kids entertainment, but I think that for the right group of older kids it could be great.

This could be great if you do a flea circus, you could either show everyone at the end at a party or charge $1 per person after to see it.

What if you were a pirate ( ;) ) and you found this on you while you were at sea. Again, show everyone or $1 a person.

Could be an interesting follow up to that scary rabbit in the hat puppet some of you have (what was it called?).

I have to admit, this particular one is not top on my list of zibits that I want, but the more I think about it the more fun I think I could have with it.

I like the look of Doug's mermaids, they're [i]so[/i] gruesome!

I think they're my favorite.
I also really like the atomic death worm and the aquatic pygmy elephant. My wife pointed out however that the mermaids are especially interesting and disturbing because of their human like features.
AND, don't even get me started on the shrunken heads ...to cool for words.
If I had enough money I would probably get a full size mermaid and a shrunken head (actually, better than the shrunken head, the whole dark museum set including head!).

It occurs to me that, as a pirate who travels the seas and sees strange and exotic things, any of these could totally fit your character.

Nice Giant Flea!
It will be a good add to my flea show.
Going to order one. I am thinking to show it as a prehistoric fossil.
