Last time the circus came to town, an ad for an animal trainer was placed in the local paper.
Only two applicants showed up: a male and a female.
The owner said he could only afford one animal trainer, so he would choose the one with the best act.
At first glance it appeared that the female was much better prepared, since she came to the interview in a very long flowing cape, with a whip & chair. She looked more like a model than a trainer.
The man’s only distinguishing feature was a soggy cigar stuffed between his cracked and leathery lips.
The owner asked who would like to go first, and the man said, “Ladies before Gentleman.”
So the lady asked for her special music to be played, and once the music started she entered the cage with a flurry of whip snapping. She motioned the attendant to release the tiger.
The tiger leaped into the cage snarling. The young lady threw aside her whip, tossed back her cape and sat on the chair as naked as the day she was born.
The tiger then circled her, sniffing the air,… then suddenly leaped toward her, put its face between her legs and started licking.
She threw back her head moaning, holding the tiger by the ears with her thighs. She rode on the tiger’s face all around the cage.
Then the owner looked at the man and said, “That’s quite an act,… Think you can do better than that?”
The man spit out his cigar, licked his lips and said, “No problem, just get that tiger out of the cage!”
