Q: What happens to people after they’ve seen the circus?
A: They get Post-Barnum depression.
I told this one to my mother, but I set it up and let it drag, like this…
“Hey, mom, did you hear about that circus study?”
“Oh, well someone did a psychological study, and they tested the endorphins of people right before they saw the circus, going to the circus, and right after the circus… then they caught up with them a week and a month later, and it turned out they were all suffering from… Post-Barnum depression.”
