Bad week for:
The Greatest Show on Earth, after Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus staged its final performance, bowing to pressure from animal rights groups and ending its 146-year run. “I’ll have to look for a job,” said trapeze artist Peter Gold.
T. rex rights, after a South Carolina woman in an orange dinosaur suit was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly scaring carriage horses on the street, causing a driver to fall off his carriage.
Last-minute shopping, after a Florida woman buying a birthday card at 10 p.m. found herself trapped inside a locked CVS when employees closed the store without noticing her still in an aisle. “I started screaming, ‘Is anyone here?’” said Lillian Rimmell, who was rescued after she dialed 911. ■
