There was a huge circus in Aberdeen some years back.
I think it was a Russian one. Anyway, the shop I worked in got a batch of free tickets for displaying posters so the g/f and I went along. It was fantastic!
Her mum owned a pet shop so we got another batch of free tickets and went again that week.
We went a third time with her little sister and my little brother as a treat for them.
Standing in the queue I got speaking to one of the ushers, telling him this was the 3rd visit, how much we enjoyed it etc. He spoke for a while about the circus, where they were headed next etc and then we went to out chairs in the front row of the outer circle. Just behind the ringside seats.
Halfway through the show there came running out a bunch of clowns, all chasing each other with buckets of coloured foam. One ran out into the crowd closely followed by another 2.
Laughing and watching the clown run off I turned my head back round to the ring and {{{SPLAT!!!}}}
A massive paintbrush of foam in my face. I could only cough and splutter as the usher from earlier, now dressed as a clown, slowly pasted my face while the kids, g/f and crowd pissed themselves laughing.
I laughed my nuts off and the clowns came up and shook my hand for taking it so well. Then the Oriental contortionist/hula-hoop girl in the skin-tight catsuit came up and gave me a towel while my g/f tried to scowl her to death.
