The Traditional Freak Show
"Gotta baby that talks. You interested?" Gus tapped his fingers on the bar. Something about his face spelled Sleazy.
"No good. They're all over the TV." Ralph shook his head. "I want an old fashioned freak show. Like PT Barnum. Clean, family entertainment. Twenty bucks a pop, kids free."
Gus ordered Jamesons on the rocks. "What you drinking?"
"A Miller. Bring me something more original, you know."
"I gotta two headed lady. Goes to church, tries to get communion for both heads."
Ralph looked interested. "They both talk?"
Gus lit a cigarette. "Nah, one's dead. It just sits there."
