And people say we’re not fun anymore!

Let me tell you, though: remember those days everyone’s always on about, the halcyon time when carnivals and circuses and funhouses were clean and innocent and honest? It was never that way. That’s the rose-colored glasses talking.

And, while I’m at it, I should add that the twisted and screamy dark nightmare carnivals, circuses, and funhouses are exactly the opposite. Looking back–or is it forward?–with nightshade-colored glasses, seeing horror everywhere. It was never like that either, movies aside.

It was always both.
