Barnyard Freaks

BarnYa2.jpgNot always for the weak of heart, Sideshow World aims to promote the past and ensue the future of the sideshow in all its strange glory.  Roam through the sights and you'll discover a huge variety of performers, circuses, strange museums and curiosity shops, craftspeople, artists, and events - both past and present - which bring the virtual sideshow to life. 

You'll also find The Barnyard Freak Show.  Not all are taxidermied - some were in fact still alive when the photos were taken - but whether dead or alive you'll certainly find you're fill of freaks of nature.  Be careful though, some images are a little more challenging that of Frizt the seven-toed cat.  Frizt seems quite happy with his situation.  The same can't be said for the eight legged lamb with 2 bodies, 2 tails, 2 hind ends and no head.  

The site makes a point of bringing the past to life, so you'll also find old posters for the smallest cow, the largest dog, or the amazing two-headed bull.
