Today's circus Trivia is from About.com where I learned many common phrases we use today came from the Circus
“Toss your hat into the ring” came from the Circus in 1916, when PresidentWilson tossed his hat into the center ring to show he’d run again.
“Hold your horses” comes from the old Circus street parade days, when the locals were warned to “hold their horses” because the elephants scared them.
“Get on the bandwagon” comes from a presidential candidate’s visit to the Circus. The candidate? Zachary Taylor in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1848.

Little Jimmy, Little Billy, and Jimmy's father were at an Art Museum. Little Jimmy was looking at a picture of someone in a carriage being pulled by a horse.
Little Jimmy brought his father over to look at the picture, and he asked his father, "Daddy, what is this?"
His dad replied, "Why, that is a horse-drawn carriage!"
Little Jimmy excitedly ran over to Little Billy, brought him back to the picture, and said, "Billy, a horse drew this picture!!"
