Kinda sorta. A friend worked for his family's travelling carnival some years ago, and occasionally subbed as a clown a few times, working the crowds. The rest of the time, he worked the carnival games. Nice guy, and a good resource on what midway games to never play.

Have you ever won a big stuffed animal at a carnival or fair?

Back in high school, my HS orchestra went to Ottawa, Canada. After our performance there was some sort of carnival, where I won a five-foot chartreuse rabbit (not counting the ears). It was quite a chore getting it home on the bus.

Have you ever taken the wrong public transportation, and wound up in a totally unfamiliar place?
