Showmen's Rest IV

Hugo, Oklahoma

 The other side of Big John Strong's monument styled after a three-ring circus tent reads 
"The man with more friends than Santa Claus".

 The other side of Joe's headstone.

The other side of Dudley's marker.

 This was a huge above ground crypt but other than the three circuses he, she, or they belonged to there were no cute epitaphs or any dates. Just the big circus tent.

 Ah, but the best performer of all and still entertaining me everyday, the Great Sinbad.

That is the end of the show folks.

Maybe he was trying to show you what your headstone could look like.
