The Merman's Underwater Circus

Children in Tonkleham waiting for the Merman's Underwater Circus. The circus causes great excitement wherever it travels, and local land children don suits that enable them to breathe underwater - not like the scuba diving suits you may be familiar with, but actual 3 piece dinner suits that not only make them look swizzlingly important, but function like a set of gills. These children are particularly excited because the underwater circus has recently obtained a new star, the highly acclaimed Fire-Breathing Porpoise, who not only breathes fire underwater (which is surely hard enough), but is said to simultaneously darn socks for members of the crowd - an extraordinary feat when you consider she has flippers for hands. Citizens, if you are in Tonkleham next weekend - particularly if you have socks* that resemble colanders - be sure to check out the famous underwater circus.

*socks should ideally not be of flammable material
