I was listening to the Ron and Fez show on XM this week, and Ron mentioned he was "of carny stock". Its not the first reference I've heard on the show. I'm not sure if its another gag or not, but it made me wonder about how many famous people got their start in the business. Does anyone know of any?

Ron Benington is rumored to have been attached to the biz somehow in the past. Not sure how.

Am I to assume you're a O and A fan too??? If so, COOL!

O and A are abrasive, twisted and cruel. So yeah, I guess I am a fan.

bubba is`a personal freind of randy burnett. his brother wesley burnett travels with myers. if i have my facts right, i think bubba drove for mulligan at east bay speedway,located 1 mile north of the gibtown club.
