The Creepiest Deal of the Day EVER

Wow, is all that I can say.  Can we just admit the Deal O’ the Day thing has jumped the shark?  I’ll write about that another day, but this will be exhibit number one.  Facebook has sent me an offer today to buy a SINGLE ticket to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.  Excuse me?  Maybe this is a new NBC “To Catch a Predator” spinoff?  Has to be something like that.

To sit near friends, TRY TO BOOK AT THE SAME TIME!!!


Get all of your family and friends together to be entertained as the circus is coming to town. Be awed by all of your favorite acts and wild animals as Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus visits the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena August 11. This world famous circus is not to be missed! Deal is for a 300 level seat, and comes courtesy of viagogo, the international ticket exchange.
