This past Thursday The Flying Karamazov Brothers graced Wabash Campus with their presence. The Flying Karamazov Brothers are a juggling and comedy troupe that have been performing since the 70′s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flying_Karamazov_Brothers). Their show was absolutely wonderful and I wish that I could see it again. They performed a trick called “The Gamble” that involves audience participation. Upon reserving tickets, people are given a sheet of paper with simple instructions. ”The Champ” will juggle any 3 things provided by the audience if they fulfill five requirements:
1.) Must weigh more than an ounce. 2.) Must weigh less than 10 pounds. 3.) Must be no bigger than a breadbox. 4.) Must not be a live animal. 5.) Must not be able to stop the “Champ” from being a live animal.
The three things that the champ juggled were: a Calculus 1 textbook, a diving flipper, and a gourd. If the Champ can juggle those things for 10 seconds, he earns a standing ovation. If he fails, he gets a pie in the face. Unfortunately, the Champ couldn’t handle the task of juggling these odd objects, and received a pie in the face. Their show was fantastic, and I recommend it to anyone.
Besides the aforementioned show, I haven’t been doing too much besides studying for a few upcoming tests that I have. I have two tests at the beginning of next week that I have been intensely studying for. So, I bid you adieu as I return to my books.
