Missi Rasmussen: Side Show Slang

Fall '13 TOC

 

Banned from the lot, amusement business operated as a hanky pank
Often referred to as "Fool the Guesser," these are purchased under assumed names
Similar to the "razzle dazzle." Fair enough game.
Blow off or a multi-gag reeled-in patrons and implied dishonesty.
Alakazam pitchman gives you another chance to win far away
From the public and officials who may be unwavering.
But here on the front end, Chinese gambling games and an "Admission $2" sign
Give you the price to pay when you ain't got a buck
To see a freak.
