sparking wonder in the minds of others) I have what could
be the ultimate desk-top curiosity for you....
You have probably wondered what happens
to flea performers after their days of glory in the circus?
Well, with a 28 day life cycle, as you can imagine, new
troops must always be trained.
Finding it hard to part with
my little charges even after their inevitable demise, I began
suspending them, still in their beautiful performing flea collars,
in an attractive little plastic trophy case.
Each case contains
a label which describes the flea, the act(s) which he performed
in the circus, and a little about him as a person.... I mean
a flea of course!
Place this wonderful little piece on your
desk, and you'll have the ultimate conversation piece, and questions

20 to 60 fleas each month, and "retire" only
the most spectacular in this time consuming fashion.
I hope you'll become the first in your
office or home to own a real performing flea of the past!

P.S. Fleas may not be
