Re: Doner Babies.
I think I was at the tail end of this side show oddity stuff, although I think it might be making a comeback. At least my state stopped allowing them with the traveling carnivals. I went into the oddities tent one time, and I hated it.
The one I remember most was looking at the "fat" lady. She was big, yes. But not unusually so and I felt such shame standing there looking at her and her looking back. And people were talking about her like she couldn't hear. I was deeply disturbed by the atmosphere and the crowd mentality and I never went in another one that had actual live people on display.
I don't fault anyone in a sideshow making a living. But it does disgust me that man's inhumanity to man is alive and well. And I was disappointed in myself that I was part of the gawking crowd.
Sorry, I sort of went off topic.
