A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an
adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about
their suitability. The couple produces photos of their 50-foot
motor home, which is clean and well maintained and equipped
with a beautiful nursery.

The social workers raise concerns about the education a
child would receive while in the couple's care.

"We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child
all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and
computer skills."

Then the social workers express concern about a child being
raised in a circus environment.

"Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare,
and diet," the circus couple explained.

The social workers are finally satisfied. They ask, "What age
child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter, as long the kid fits in the cannon."
