Big top POP! 馬戲團驚爆
Mark and Kathleen were wandering through town when they saw a circus tent.
"Uncle Earl, my long lost uncle, works for a traveling circus," Mark said. "Let's see if he's there."
They went into the tent but didn't see Uncle Earl anywhere.
All of a sudden a young kid threw peanuts at Mark.
"What was that?" Mark said.
"He wants you to do a trick," Kathleen said. "He thinks you're part of the show."
Mark didn't know any tricks but he was hungry. He started doing jumping jacks and a crowd of people gathered.
"Look at all the food you're getting," Kathleen said. "Do a somersault."
He did and the crowd cheered. They threw peanuts, popcorn and chocolates at him. Mark began sucking up the food through his trunk.
"Delicious," Mark said. "Uh-oh."
Mark's voice sounded like his nose was stuffed up. He had just sucked up a pack of chewing gum!
"Something's stuck," Kathleen said. "Try blowing out your trunk."
Mark did and a big bubble formed. Then there was a large pop!
"The elephant has a gun!" a lady yelled.
Everyone was really scared. An elephant wearing a top hat came in. It was Uncle Earl!
"What's going on?" Earl said…
