HERE is an interesting article about re-creating a Victorian flea-circus prop.

And HERE is a British site devoted to "flea circus reserarch."

Thanks for the links, I recently gained an interest in flea circuses. I don't know if I'll end up building one (too hard), but they're a lot of fun to research.

Also I hear it's illegal now to use real fleas in a lot of parts of the world - it seems strange making laws to protect fleas, but I must admit a lot of the stuff you need to do to them is pretty cruel.

Yes, imagine the billions of these poor little creatures being victims of genocide everyday from flea collars.

The first in the series of poems I've been working on....working on all too long...

The Ballad of Jonathan Dark

There once was a man named Jonathan Dark
Whose life had become a bit of a lark
He spent a fair part of each day and each night
Training some fleas a most tedious plight

He beat them and thrashed ‘em, burned them and mashed ‘em
All with the hope, from his mind most diseased
That they’d follow his cues, and do as he pleased

These are the tales, of those fleas mostly used
Beaten, battered, killed and abused
And while the details are scant, even stark
It all came to pass
At the fabulous flea circus of Jonathan Dark (c) 2009 Jonathan Dark

Yes and this took all of 5 minets to form.

A Flea called Evil Flea Knievel,
Was a stunt Flea shot out of a gun,
He was dashing and bright,
Till the day of his fright,
When a bullet shot up his Fleabum.

Hurculfleas saw all this happen,
The strongest Flea in the land,
He rushed to help Evil Flea Knievel,
With rubber gloves on each hand.

The other Flea Circus performers,
Were all of the highest class,
Applauded as good old Hurculfleas,
Removed the bullet from out of his a*s*s

A poem for dyslexics,,,goo ga det rees bobbo dinkum.

Now one for Dave : >
There was a young Flea called Dave,
Who went out one night to a rave,
He couldn`t dance,
With the ants in his pants,
So he flew from the rave in a rage.

Went back home to his trouble and strife,
Who was fed up with being his wife,
Said she felt brocken hearted everytime that Dave F****D,
So she left with the handsom Kondini, that night !!

That took at least two minets !!!
