Freak Find

Fark linked up this brief history of "special people", more familiar to the rest of us as circus geeks. For a very long time it was thought these people were exploited, and eventually freak shows had to close down because of this perception. It was only later revealed that the circuses paid their "special people" very well indeed, and the do-gooders of the 60s and 70s merely ended the best jobs of their lives.
