Mr Monkey sees the Circus of Wonders, 21st February

"She's very convincing, you know"

The first sideshow Mr Monkey saw was Yvette, the Headless Woman. The barker, Jon Marshall, introduced a tape from the 1950s claiming that a young woman had been dragged into machinery just as a famous surgeon was passing. He apparently quickly did emergency surgery on the girl, leaving her alive but headless. Mr Monkey wondered if she was real or not, but she took her gloves off, and moved her legs.
