Carnival Exploitation Billboards

These exploitative carnival attractions were found on my wanderings around Florida and they are creepy and sad at the same time. I did not have the heart to pay a US$1.00 (!) to gawk at the "World's Smallest Woman" or "Snake Girl" because I actually felt bad for them, wondering how they must feel being on display as freaks of nature. The billboards are kind of cool though, so are most carnival visual grabbers - cool in a crude and unsophisticated way - right up my alley! The carnival world is filled with hyperboles as everywhere you look you seem to find "the word's smallest this or biggest that" and all for the low US$1.00 price of admission.
