Need tiny clowns

From San Diego Craigslist, via Ryan: "Now hiring 6-10 smaller carny types to drive/ride in modified "tiny" volkswagen beetle for grand finale of traveling road show."

Now, you'd think this'd be such a rarefied world that the people who fit the description would be, you know, findable. For example:

Experience necessary:

Ability to manipulate small handles under duress.
Resistance to fire is a plus. Similar roadshows are now igniting finale performers.
Ability to dodge potentially dangerous projectiles.
Must get along with others and pack animals.
Excellent communication skills.

But here's my favorite part.... whaddya get for your fire-resistance and Matrix-like dodging skills?:


Compensation: tips mostly
This is an internship job.
I'll take it. (MightyMcPilgrim)
